Windows XP when it installs will blow away the MBR. The way I installed was 
partion my drive and hide a partion (xp will want to use the whole drive). 
Then install XP, then unhide the partion and install Linux. You probably 
could repartion after the XP install with partion magic etc. Since you 
installed Linux then Windows my best guess is to rerun the Fedora install as 
an upgrade and maybe it will reclaim your MBR and install grub there without 
formatting your drive.
