  • Boot into rescue mode using Fedora CD1
    1. Mount the root partition
    mount -o dev,rw /mnt/hdax
    2. Install GRUB
    grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/hdax /dev/hda

    hdax - the linux partition (hda2,hda3...)
    /dev/hda - the drive to install GRUB

    I've not tried it out, but it may work
