Dual Os xp and fedora 3 grub problem


I just installed fedora 3 onto a sperate hd from my main xp hard drive. On boot up I get a screen with

GRUB>

at the top left. I can not type anything or get anything to happen. After a number of keys have been pushed a sound beebs each time a key is hit. Even if I know where the grub was installed how would I be able to get to it. When I can not type anything.
Please help.

Refer to this link http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/299767

Also if you have a live CD you can try reinstalling GRUB...
