Can you expand on "won't mount"? Does the system boot and you just can't
access /boot, or is the system hanging during boot complaining if can't
find something?

The boot flag isn't really used by grub. It's more for WinDos type boot
loaders. When you setup grub, (grub-install or grub> setup (hd0) ) the
required information is written to the boot sector so grub knows where
to find the files to continue booting.

If you have changed the partition layout (moved /boot from hda0 to hda1
or something like that) or you have removed the boot symlink in /boot,
you have to ru-run grub-install or setup for these changes to take

It sounds like grub in loading properly, but you may just have a
configuration error in your /boot/grub/grub.conf (aka menu.lst). Do you
change anything about to kernel command with the grub command line to
get the system to boot?
