Unhappy After windows reinstall Can't see Fedora at startup

I had windows xp before(C:\) and installed Fedora(F:\). I was able to see option of choosing Fedora or Dos at startup. But after I installed Windows 2000 in the C:\ drive, I am not able to see Fedora option at the startup. I didn't delete any Fedora partitions or any other partition except the C:\ drive partition. Is there any way of starting Fedora and have the option of starting either Fedora or Dos at reboot like before.

Please Help. Thank you.

Hi mraghava!!!

Welcome to Windows always overwrites the boot loader when you reinstall it. What you could do is to boot with your Fedora disk1 and see if there's a rescue mode. If there's, simply reinstall the boot loader and you are all set

Good luck!
