Here's a tip: before you reinstall GRUB, make sure you mount /boot.  

In my case, GRUB on Debian squeeze was complaining about not being 
able to use an LVM partition for the GRUB-root because I'm using LVM 
for my Linux-root and /boot (the mount point) is on that filesystem.

On Debian, if your boot loader was not set up correctly during 
install, when you get to a rescue command line, I recommend using 
"dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc" instead of manually running update-grub 
(to generate your config file) and grub-install (to actually setup 
grub in the MBR, etc.)
