Adding another mountpoint to my Grub loader?

I installed mandrake 10 and then installed Fedora C2, but the FC2 Grub loader, ofcourse overwrit the bootloader from Mandrake, so how can I add mandrakes mount point to the existing Grub boot loader list?

Let us see fdisk -l and then your current /boot/grub/menu.lst or /boot/grub/grub.conf also you should be able to mount /dev/hdxx xx being the old mandrake grub.conf or menu.lst and see what was there then add that to the new one.Did you install grub to the MBR?

I agree with comprookie2000. First give us your disk geometry (fdisk -l) and we can go from there.
