----
boot the F10 DVD - choose 'Rescue mode' and do not install again

Accept the default options and it should locate the Fedora 10
installation automatically and leave you at a command prompt

Type...
chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub-install /dev/sda
exit
exit

remove the DVD and it should boot into F10

If not, please post the contents of /boot/grub/grub.conf
