I fixed the grub, but when I load it stops and gives me this error:

fsck.ext3: No such file or directory
while trying to open /dev/ROOT
'dev/ROOT:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock.

I would go back into your fstab file and change /dev/ROOT to /dev/hda3 or wherever the root partition actually resides.
