dual boot xp fedora core 2

I installed fedora core 2 on my secondary master drive without a boot loader. On primary master it is XP.

Is it possible to boot fedora core 2 using a boot floppy ? During in the installation process it did not ask me to make a boot floppy. or CD. (it stated that I have to , but did not promt me to)

Is there a way that I can boot in to linux without installing a boot loader ?

Thank you in advance.

I don't think you can.

You may use a live distro (like knoppix) or a rescue floppy, there several images available, in order to boot into linux, make a boot floppy etc.
