You can pull one from the boot.iso file:

The problem that you're going to run in to is that Fedora does not
include a tool to resize NTFS partitions, so before you can install
Fedora, you need to find a way to free space on your drive.

Well, thanks guys, but I have two HDDs... so I plan to keep one with the files on, and the other HDD to be formatted during installation. Then, later after installation completes, I'll format the first HDD an add it to the LV...

I'll probably go ahead with the proc tonight, wish me luck :) I'll keep you updated

In the web-page supplied (which is VERY good, by the way) it says:
Finally to enable your Linux installer in GRUB's menu, edit the file F:\boot\grub\menu.lst adding a paragraph similar to this one:
title My Linux installer of choice
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/your_linux_kernel_filename distribution_specific_options
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/your_ramdisk_filename
and the contents of the isolinux.cfg file are:
default linux
prompt 1
timeout 600
display boot.msg
F1 boot.msg
F2 options.msg
F3 general.msg
F4 param.msg
F5 rescue.msg
label linux
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img
label text
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd= initrd.img text
label ks
kernel vmlinuz
append ks initrd=initrd.img
label local
localboot 1
label memtest86
kernel memtest
append -

So, according to that, what should the distro specific options look like?
title My Linux installer of choice
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz what_do_i_write_here?
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/initrd.img
