    i think so

    How to use Fedora Core 2 Rescue CD, to gain root user access?
    01) Read me:
    01a) General Notes
    01b) Only applies in True Console mode
    02) Insert Fedora Core 2 Rescue CD:
    02a) At boot menu, press "Enter" Key
    03) If you do not have Fedora Core 2 Rescue CD, insert Fedora Core 2 CD 1:
    03a) At boot menu type "linux rescue":
    03b) Press "Enter" Key
    04) Follow the instructions until you see the command prompt:
    04a) sh-2.05b#
    05) To mount existing linux installation:
    05a) sh-2.05b# chroot /mnt/sysimage
    06) You have root user access now
    07) Done!

    but it dont tell me how to fix my probeem

    Have you tried nuking both oses and then putting them back on? Why did your bro install windows on your machine anyway?

    What you need to do is to reinstall grub on the master boot record.

    To do this, get into rescue mode. If you have the Fedora cds, boot them up and enter
    linux rescue
    when promted for options.

    When in rescue mode, do the following:
    grub-install /dev/hda
    This will hopefully reinstall grub in the master boot record, once grub is reinstalled, you should be able to boot.

    I wouldn't reinstall grub, as long as you are not sure, that the Linux partition wasn't deleted!
