The grompp commands needs a file with the options. You specify it with 
the -f option
and the default value is grompp.mdp. Work through the getting started 
excercise if
it doesn't make sense!

The .top file is the topology of your system (i.e. it specifices the 
types of atoms and
all parameters) and should be exactly the same for all your runs - you 
definitely shouldn't
try  to create a new topology after the energy minimization.

You might have overwritten your topology with a coordinate file or

Check http://www.gromacs.org/faq/

Just add the flag '-debug' when running the command in question (e.g. 
mdrun). This
will add A LOT more information in the .log files.
