    Are you using GRUB Floppy to boot up machine? If not, then I would suggest you to use Fedora Installation CD/DVD for GRUB re-installation.

    Its pretty easy to re-install GRUB using Fedora 8 Installation CD/DVD. Boot up in Rescue Mode using Installation CD/DVD and execute this
    Code:
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/sda
    exit 
    exit
    It will re-install GRUB.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Do you want to create a GRUB Rescue Floppy or Install GRUB in a Floppy?

    Either go through Link posted by ozar and create Floppy Or download SuperGRUB Floppy Image. SuperGRUB Floppy will work as Rescue Floppy.
