Grub problem after repartitioning

hello !
On one of my computers I have a HDD partioned in 3: C-win system partition, D-NTFS data, E-Fedora 9 partition. I tried to split the secon partiton (D) and after that, when rebooting, I enter now in some sort of "grub-command-line-window" and I was not able to boot either in win or in F9. Do you have any ideea of how can I proceed to continue ? It is possible to use the F9 dvd installer to repair the grub ?
I know that I can use the win XP cd to reinstall win, but that will smash my F9.
Thank you !

You may just have relabeled your partitions.

If you can boot into the rescue mode of the DVD, can you show th contents of the grub menu (/boot/grub/menu.lst) and the output of "fdisk -l"
