Removing Mandrake Bootloader

I installed Mandrake 10.0 recently. I deleted the Mandrake partitions from within Windows XP Pro, but the bootloader is still there. I installed Fedora Core 2 just a few minutes ago, but it's not showing up on the Mandrake bootloader. How can I remove the Mandrake bootloader so that I can boot into Fedora?

This is might not be much use but if you boot from the xp cd and load up the xp recovery console you can type fixboot C: . This will install the xp bootloader and then try installing fedora core again (By the way i have never used fedora or xp, I just read the fixboot thing from a xp book).

I read something about this before, but they said that it only works if you have one OS. I have: WinXP Professional Edition SP2, WinXP 64-Bit Edition, and Fedora Core on different partitions. I'll take a chance and try it. I never used 64-bit WinXP much anyway.
