    Try runing the installation CD once again, but this time, run it in "rescue-mode"
    I beleive you will have an option to re-install the boot-loader again.

    I think you would have to boot from the first cd of fedora, in rescue mode.
    When you get to the prompt, do the following:

    # chroot /mnt/sysimage
    # grub-install <device> (where device is /dev/hda, if that is where you MBR is at)

    Of course, if you have a boot floppy, go to a root console and just type in;

    # grub-install <device>
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
