Which distro and version are you using? Are you saying you can manually boot grub but it won't boot otherwise? Did you do any upgrades recently? How many hardrives, partitions do you have? Can you post fdisk -l and menu.lst output?

grub is usually installed after the kernel. If you have a live cd, boot and from terminal run the command yancek ask. We need the information he asked for or we would be guessing.

My guess is that some of the files for Fedora were distroyed in making the new partition. You may have to reinstall Fedora. You can use a live cd to recover any data on it. I am not sure with Fedora 8, but there should be a repair mode. But remember all we can do is guess till you give us your fdisk - l. The /boot/grub/menu.lst can wait because if it was on Fedora you may not be able to find it.
