    Hello and welcome!

    SuperGRUB usually works well for restoring the GRUB bootloader:

    You can also find SuperGRUB on the Parted Magic LiveCD if you'd rather run it from that.

    It's really easy to re-install GRUB. Just boot up from Fedora installation CD and select Linux rescue in Installation Menu. It will drop at shell prompt.
    Execute this at shell prompt :
    Code:
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/sda
    exit
    exit
    GRUB will be back in business.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
