Do you mean that you have a root, separate boot partition and a swap for Redhat and a root and swap for Fedora? First it is unlikely that you need two swap partitions. Second, if Fedora is booting, you installed it to the mbr and will need an entry in its menu.lst file for RedHat. In Fedora, run the command "fdisk -l" (lower case Letter L, w/o quotes) and /boot/grub/menu.lst (or /boot/grub/grub.conf - whichever Fedora uses now) and post them here. Need to be run as root user.
