Thanks Mikkel, 

But it does not work.  However, cutting and pasting the Fedora 9 grub entries for the kernel lets me boot into Fedora 9, so practically it is a DONE deal.  Thanks for answering the mail much appreciated.  The chainloader stuff did not work in this case, in the other case it worked for a while, but the chainloader stuff failed to load those kernels only GRUB_ appeared on the screen so cutting+pasting the entries solved this issue.  

Regards,

Antonio
