    Your post isn't clear, to me at least. Do you mean you have Ubuntu installed and working and then installed Fedora and are now unable to boot Ubuntu? If that's the case, you probably installed the Fedora version of Grub and don't have an entry for Ubuntu in your /boot/grub/grub.conf file which you will need to add manually. Fedora doesn't usually detect other Linux OS's.

    Boot into Fedora and run the command: fdisk -l, this will show your partition setup. Then post contents of /boot/grub/grub.con.

    If you haven't resolved the problem post the information I requested in my previous post:

    Boot into Fedora and run the command: fdisk -l, this will show your partition setup. Then post contents of /boot/grub/grub.conf

    We need to know your partition structure and contents of grub.conf to advise you.

    Fedora is one of the exceptional distro which does not detect other installed Linux distros and one has to edit its GRUB manually.

    Post the output of this
    Code:
    su -
    /sbin/fdisk -l
    df -h
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
