You can reinstall GRUB from a live CD without reinstalling the OS itself. This is a guide for Ubuntu, but it should work on any system that uses GRUB.

Please provide some more detail about your system:
How many drives and partitions?
What is installed--eg Windows + Fedora (which version)
If it is dual-boot, can you get into Windows (or whatever the other OS is)?
Is your Fedora disk a live CD?
