HELP with muti-boot of windows 7 and fedora 13


Hi all.. I had a windows 7 installed in my HDD and i installed fedora 13 in an extra partition. I formatted that partition as per instruction dividing it into "/boot","home","swap".. I have completed the installation successfully but after rebooting the windows 7 loaded automatically without taking a choice.. i didn't found fedora anywhere..
any one wanna help me how to boot them both?? I have read many articles but found nothing useful just reading the word GRUB & GRUB... pls anyone guide me through full process... really thnx in advance

Spell out your words.

And since you read the word GRUB, did you try any of the articles? Anything? There are many how-tos on the internet about this, and Google can lead you to them. This has been answered on here many times too, if you search:

i take it you installed grub ON THE FIRST LINUX partition and NOT on the MBR
all of the fedora/ xp , fedora /vista dual boot guides are 100% worthless for win 7

boot using the gparted live cd
and change the boot flag on the ms bootloader to OFF
and make the linux /boot partition bootable

Great. Again, SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS, and since you found a solution, how about posting it, so the community can benefit, since it's not the one posted already?
