Dual boot fedora and windoz-xp



Hi list.
I have just installed Fedora on its own 40GB hard drive on a
dual boot system. I told the installer to use the empty 40GB,
(slave) and go for the default partition - lvm set up. Grub was
installed on the master disk as for default. When I reboot I
don't get any grub screen giving me a choice of o/s , it just
goes straight into xp. Is there a key combination I can press to
get into grub? I have been using Mandriva for about two years so
 I'm not quite a Linux newbie, but I do not have much experience
with Grub, as Mandriva uses Lilo. I rebooted with the Fedora
core 5 DVD and went into the repair option, but not being a
linux comand line expert could not do much with it. I typed
grubconfig and got no recognised command. I then typed grub and
got to a grub - bash like shell, after which typing grub help
gave me a list of options none of which seemed to be much help
to me as a Fedora / grub newbie! Can any one give me some
advice?
