                        FC6 is installed on an 80g sata drive replacing

                        The "rescue disc" is not much help, probably

                        Any suggestions appreciated.

sounds similar to problem I experienced. 
I booted into rescue mode then issued a chroot /mnt/sysimage.
cd /boot/grub and check the file. Assuming your system disk is /dev/sda it should have:

(hd0) /dev/sda

if it doesn't, modify it so it does and run:

grub-install /dev/sda

Also check the /boot/grub.conf file and see if the various files are being referenced to the correct device partition,  it should be (hd0,0) if your system drive is the first device.

Hope this helps, Alastair
