Fedora Ubuntu Dual boot

I had fedora installed on my laptop and i wanted to install ubuntu too

my hard disk looks like this:
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *        2048    40962047    20480000   83  Linux
/dev/sda2        40962048    61442047    10240000   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3        61444096   100506595    19531250   83  Linux
/dev/sda4       100507648   976773167   438132760    f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5       100509696   491134695   195312500    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda6       491134976   976771694   242818359+  83  Linux
fedora 17 was installed on /dev/sda1 with Grub installed on MBR and /dev/sda2 as swap area.
i then installed ubuntu on /dev/sda3

after restart,Grub could only find fedora .. booting it was way slower than usual.
i found ubuntu files on /dev/sda3 but it is not readable in Grub.

what should i do to make it boot ??

If you are only able to boot Fedora and don't have an entry for Ubuntu you will probably need to run this command:

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Take a look at the Fedora page below for more information.
