Code:
dimitros,
what you have described seems to me as you are in grub command line. Specify a little bit what exactly you want ?
Have you installed Fedora13 or do you want to install it ? 
If you have got stuck in grub- you can execute the following commands :
boot or /sbin/boot-- this will boot the system if you have an OS.
reboot or /sbin/reboot - will reboot your system.
help - will show you the list of commands available.
Regards,
nm04

No need to panic on any error messages. Its just informing about the issue. Linux is Brilliant. For you this link would be very helpful.

It contains all the distro's documentations. So start learning and practicing Linux.

Learn this also.

Was your computer booting your default OS before that?
What changes did you make before you got that Grub error?

Please use the translator!

Refer this link for your understanding.

If your '/etc/grub.conf' looks like the below

Code:
   root (hd0,1)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.9-21 ro root=/dev/hda6 s
        initrd /initrd-2.4.9-21.img

Try this

Code:
grub> root (hd0,1)              // after entering this command you will get a hex value
grub> kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.9-21 ro root=/dev/hda6   // after entering this command you will get a hex value
grub> initrd /initrd-2.4.9-21.img  // after entering this command you will get a hex value
grub> boot  // after entering this command OS become to boot
Enter each command step by step. Even after this if the error shows, insert your bootable CD and install the grub.
