Actually, I don't think this is so bad. Why not leave it this way? There is a good chance that "Other" in your Fedora boot menu will boot Windows right now. And if it doesn't, a simple tweak to the grub.conf file usually makes it happen. Before you do anything to the active partition, try "Other" in the Fedora boot menu. If it doesn't boot Windows, then return and post the results of these...
P.S.: This change-the-active-partition thing started with Fedora 11. I think there have already been changes made by the developers to stop this from happening next time. But for now, it could be viewed in a positive light... A new boot loader variation for the paranoid Windows user who wants no changes to the current Windows boot loader arrangement. The advantage is that no configuring of the Windows boot loader is needed for Fedora (and Windows) to boot. And all that is needed to bail out and go back to Windows is fix the active partition (easy to do). It's actually kind of a neat twist. It works in my head anyway. I hope you try it and confirm it.
P.P.S.: I'm not willing to bet our lives on it, but I still believe that your MS master boot record is safe and sound.
