Lets guess: When you boot from the hard disk only the "grub>" prompt
appears, right?

This means that grub is loaded, but can't find its menu (menu.lst).
So it asks you to enter command by hands.  Try entering at the grub> prompt:

  configfile /grub/menu.lst

If I'm right you should get your menu,  provided that you have a
menu.lst at all, see the grub tutorial...

Your menu.lst is probably at /grub/menu.lst in your boot partition,
but grub searches in /boot/grub/menu.lst.  After booting linux from
disk, you should put a symlink in your boot directory:  
  cd /boot
  ln -s . boot
