    re-install GRUB and check if it works.
    boot up from Fedora Installation CD and execute this code at boot: prompt
    Code:
    linux rescue
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/hda
    press Ctrl+D two times.

    in case it doesn't work, post the contents of grub.conf file and output of 'fdisk -l' command.

    here's the grub.conf output

    # grub.conf generated by anaconda
    #
    # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
    # NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
    # all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
    # root (hd0,7)
    # kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
    # initrd /initrd-version.img
    #boot=/dev/sda
    default=1
    timeout=5
    splashimage=(hd0,7)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    #hiddenmenu
    title Fedora Core 5 (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp)

    you must be logged in as root and 'fdisk -l' <-- its small 'L'.
