How do I get GRUB Dual Boot

I installed FC6 via HTTP after not being able to get the disks to install on one system in the household. It appears to have installed, but I never got the option to dual boot and now it just boots into windows.

I do an linux rescue but no matter what I do to GRUB INSTALL, all I get is an error that states "Does not have cooresponding BIOS drive".

Looking for help on this one.

Well, the bootloader should be installed on the MBR of the drive you boot to. This means /dev/sda or /dev/hda, whichever your drive is called. Perhaps try a new install of grub and manually specify the destination.

you can come into linux rescue by the first cd ,and mount windows's boot partition , then copy the first section of boot by "dd" order ,at last add c:/linuxfc6.lin="fc6" in the boot loader.if you don't know how to do ,you'd better watch fc's documentation.
