Hi  Joseph L. Casale!

It is just a guess but I think your grub boot MBR is at the beginning
of sda2.  Regardless you need to know what is in the MBR so I refer
you to:

http://mirror.href.com/thestarman/asm/mbr/GRUB.htm   (and do a search
for "dd if".  The whole article is rather interesting I think)

Probably the method followed in this thread:

http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/redhat-fedora-linux-help/45911-dual-booting-windows-xp-fedora-solution.html

is more in line with what you wanted.

Have a lot of fun!!

Tod
