It seems we see more boot sector and partition problems with failed or unsatisfactory Linux installations. I know it's too late for you, but the very handy "rEFIt" is the way to go when setting up a dual boot with any Linux distro.

As for resolving your difficulty: Probably, the best way is to backup your OS X partition, use Disk Utility from your install DVD and remove all partitions, erase the drive, reformat it, and start over.

I advise doing that because it appears the partition map (and possibly the boot sector) has been corrupted. Best to re-do everything. Let us know...

Regards.
