Fix what?

You can boot Fedora and see your vista files in Fedora?
You can't boot into vista?
If that's the case, look in the /boot/grub/menu.lst (might be grub.conf in Fedora) file and see if you have a windows/vista entry. If not, put one there.

It is also possible that it is only listed as Other
If you need more help post the outcome of the commands cat /boot/grub/menu.lst and
fdisk -l (L lowr case)
