grub instalation (solved by manual Grub-install)

Have you encountered the same error with Fedora 9?
I tried with Fedora 9 (short time after release) and I got this same error.
After this I tried to use Live CD (Fedora 9) and this works without any
problem but I didn't install to external USB drive.
Currently I have diffrent hardware and I don't know if I can reproduce this
I'm going to close this report then. If you encounter the error again, please
reopen this and report it.
