Looks a lot like
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=116653

Please post if you get this working - have been following this issue as
I'd like to put FC2 on my IBM A21p notebook that currently runs FC1 and
XP, but have been leery due to numerous reports of FC2/XP dual boot
problems.  The above bug is still open, and some earlier threads
suggested the above work-arounds, but there did not seem to be a
reported successful resolution in some cases.
