Although you say you've solved this, just for curiosity's sake, can you
remember where you told the installer to put GRUB?

I set up FC6 dual-booting on a friend's XP, it did not put GRUB
on /dev/hda like I told it to, I had your problem.  I had to manually
re-install GRUB.  GRUB's fine, there's something screwy with the FC6
installation routine.
