that page explains the grub error codes.
it says: 
    16 : Inconsistent filesystem structure
            This error is returned by the filesystem code to denote an
        internal error caused by the sanity checks of the filesystem
        structure on disk not matching what it expects. This is usually
        caused by a corrupt filesystem or bugs in the code handling it
        in GRUB. 

The most likely scenario is that the specified grub root filesystem
can't be read by grub, probably because it was specified incorrectly or
because it was set up improperly.  Were you sure to create a root
filesystem?  Where you careful to create it in the right place? Did you
use a filesystem type that GRUB can read?

If you need more help, please be sure to include the output of (as
root) :

mount /boot && ( mount;printf "\n"; cat /boot/grub/grub.conf; 
        printf "\n", ls -laR /boot; umount /boot;)

that is very useful information for diagnosing your problem.  You can
see for yourself that it won't cause harm to your computer ;-)
