dual boot fedora & vista - boot error - "GRUB loading stage 2"

Hey there,

I just installed Vista on my new computer, and now would like to dual boot it with FC7.

However, after I installed Fedora and rebooted my computer, GRUB doesn't show up and let me choose which OS I would like to boot into, instead, it comes up with the message "GRUB loading stage 2", then boots straight into FC7.

Anyone experienced something similar and knows how to solve this problem? Any help would be appreciated.


[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/grub.conf 
# grub.conf generated by anaconda 
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file 
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that 
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg. 
# root (hd0,2) 
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 
# initrd /initrd-version.img
