This would have been easier to fix before installing the new
version. Probably the fastest fix is to boot the new install, and
re-install Grub to the boot record of /boot. The boot in the rescue
mode of the install DVD or boot CD. Tell it you want to fix
re-install the boot loader of the F9 install. After rebooting into
F9, edit grub and add a chainloader entry to the F11 /boot
directory. You can use the Windows entry as an example.
