Where and when did you type this command?

AFAIK, the right way to do this is:

1. Boot from a recovery CD
2. Mount your "/" partition under "/mnt/tmp" (for example)
3. If you have a "/boot" partition, mount it under "/mnt/tmp/boot"
4. Give the command:

grub-install   --root-directory=/mnt/tmp   /dev/sdX

(where X is your drive letter, for example 'a' will mean 'sda')

5. Reboot and enjoy the freedom

(ofcourse, there is also secret step number 6, where you might need to
add the windows entry to your 'menu.lst', but we won't talk about that
here ;) )
