	Boot from the FC1 disk and enter 'rescue linux' at the first prompt...
After a little while you'll see "Found linux install at /dev/hdx... Use
this system?"  
	Tell it Yes, it'll tell you that it will start a shell and that you
should enter "chroot /the path to the installed linux system".
	After you've done that you can enter the grub-install /dev/hda command
followed by int 6(reboot) make sure the CD is removed!
