grub-install and "does not have any corresponding BIOS drive"

After installing other system on other partition i must re-install grub.

# grub-install hd0
/dev/mapper/pdc_bbcaggibjp2 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.

????

Fedora is on /dev/hda2
/dev/hda1 1 124 995998+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hda2 * 125 912 6329610 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 913 2148 9928170 a9 NetBSD
/dev/hda4 2149 9729 60894382+ 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 2149 4017 15012709+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda6 4018 9729 45881605 83 Linux

grub.conf:
default=0
timeout=5
nodmraid
splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.16-1.2122_FC5)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5 ro nodmraid root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5.img

So i don't understand why "grub-install" procedure doesn't work. Before (FC1,2,3,4) i don't have this problems

diagnose this problem is very hard for me, cause googling give me many results on many different problems name as "does not have any corresponding BIOS drive"

Don't use GRUB numbers - You'll want:
Code:
grub-install /dev/hda
