1. Boot off the 1st Fedora CD or use the Fedora Rescue CD
2. At the boot prompt type 'linux rescue'
3. The rescue mode will find the fedora installation
4. Type 'chroot /mnt/sysimage' (without quotes)
5. Type 'grub-install /dev/hda'; alternatively, 'grub-install /dev/sda' for SATA drives; (to install Grub to the MBR of the 1st HD)
6. Restart and you should get the boot menu
