No, just edit /boot/grub/menu.lst . Google the file, and there should be several tutorials on how to add a new kernel to boot.

I'm not sure, however, if that file will be edited during the Fedora installation process. THAT you might want to watch. I'd reccomend backing up the file to an external source (USB stick, CD, floppy, web based email) before you toy around, so that you can restore GRUB if all else fails...

If you are installing Fedora and ubuntu and windows are already installed, then Fedora grub will over write the Ubuntu one and add all the entries there. From there you could choose which os should be your default one.
But if you want to keep Ubuntu grub and do not want Fedora to install it just check the option not to install boot loader while you install Fedora. And then you can add the Fedora entry to grub manually.
