Booting from an external Hard Drive, GRUB.
 
I have the following configuration:
Windows XP on my Internal HDD: 80GB
Fedora 9 on my External HDD: 120GB

I installed Fedora on my external drive and GRUB is now resident on my external HDD, as I cannot even boot the computer without attaching the external HDD. I know I should have modified GRUB during the install, but its too late now.

Can someone help me with that?
Thanks a lot!

It's may not be just the MBR (both of them) that needs to be fixed. Let's see the output from the following (might need root)
Code:

cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
cat /etc/fstab
fdisk -l
