    If you upgrade your Windows install you will have to reinstall the bootloader for Linux afterwards. You can do this with your Fedora install CD in rescue mode. Have you ever installed grub before?

    Grub installation is really easy. After Windows OS Upgrade, boot up from Fedora Installation CD/DVD and select Rescue Mode.
    Execute this at prompt :
    Code:
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/sda
    exit 
    exit
    Thats it !
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
