If you didn't over-write '/boot' and its sub-directories with the FC install you can get the needed information off of the menu.lst file in the grub directory and paste the command into the active boot directory's grub menu.lst. If you use LILO, I have no experience there. Thought, I'm sure the process should be similar in some sense or other.
