Getting a grub error like that is not something that you can cause or control at least as far as I know.
That should just work and can't be something you're doing wrong.
You can try again and if it does the same thing, you can boot from the install disk and manually re-install grub to see if that helps.
If you already have grub installed from another distro you can always install the Fedora grub to the /boot partition and chainload it from the other grub. During install when you get to the bootloader setup screen tick the "Configure advanced options" box then choose to install grub to the partition instead of MBR.
You'll need to edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst for the grub you use now and add Fedora.
Remember that grub counts from 0, so for example if you installed Fedora to the third partition on the first drive your new entry could look like
title Fedora 8
