look in at you grub.conf file the next time you booted up at home. It can be
access from /etc/grub.conf or /boot/grub/grub.conf .
You'll most likely see a line in it with the string /boot/grub/menu.lst just
remove the /boot part and it should work fine the next time.
from what you've stated works,I'm guessing that you have a separate boot
partition with grub installed there. So any paths in the grub.conf file should
consider /boot as /.
s/\/boot//g is the correct regular expression I think. Use at your own risk
