On my Centos 5.9 64 bit machine I get Error 15: File not found when try to find stage1 at grub prompt:

grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
find /boot/grub/stage1

Error 15: File not found

grub> find /grub/stage1
find /grub/stage1

Error 15: File not found

I can see stage1 is available under /boot/grub/ directory:

# ll /boot/grub/
