Switch back from windows bootloader to grub

Hey everyone, I thought it would be cool and easy to install Windows 7, ended up being a headache and worthless so far. Now I only have the windows bootloader with vista and windows 7 as options. How can I get grub going again? I have all 6 fedore core 10 cds and a live cd in case those will help, I am using the live cd to play in fedora right now, but I am not sure how to get access to grub.conf and what to change in it, because I am pretty sure I have to add Windows 7 to it. But first grub
Thanks for all the help!

grub-install /dev/sda

Oh sorry.

Yes CD 1.

type "linux rescue" when booting the CD.

You could also try:
http://www.supergrubdisk.org/

That would be easier, and does the job.
