Boot a live CD. Mount your Fedora partition. Your grub configuration is in /boot/grub/menu.lst in your Fedora partition. Set up menu.lst the way that you want with a text editor. Then use the chroot command to change root to your Fedora / partition. Then install grub on the MBR using the grub-install command.

boot, dual, grub, install
