anyone have any suggestions or help?
If you can't see boot.ini
Start>run notepad boot.ini
post the contents of that file and I'll make it so it will boot right. You can copy and paste the new one in place from my follow up post. Or, if you can follow this:
copy and paste a line under [operating systems]. It doesn't matter which one. So, now you have 3 os lines. There are four numbers in parentheses. Change the last two to (1) (1) Change the path to /boot/grub. Change what is in quotes to Fedora 5. Remove /fastdetect. You might have to mess around with the path a little. Like you might have to specifiy /boot/grub/menu.lst, or you might need to use backslashes. But, now there will be a Fedora 5 option in the MS Windows boot menu.
