How to get my GRUB back from my Ubuntu partition?

I have 2 Linux distros installed on my computer (Ubuntu and Fedora). Before I installed Fedora, I was using Ubuntu's GRUB but when I installed Fedora, I now have Fedora's GRUB as default. How can I go back to using Ubuntu's GRUB?

Ubuntu 10.10 on sda5
Fedora 15 on sda7
