It looks like Grub was installed on the wrong drive. Did you only
have one drive installed when you did the install? You could
probably have booted FC6 by telling the BIOS to boot from the second
drive, if your BIOS has that option.

You may find

interesting if you want to use the Windows boot loader to boot FC6.
