Hi Matt!

I doubt you can go back once being in the chainloaded FC2t3 grub. Why do
you prefer that solution anyway?

I would just install a second Fedora Core and putting it's grub to the
MBR. The /etc/grub.conf has to have sections for both Fedoras. You just
have to care for the use of the LABEL feature. Therefor relabel the
partitions of the second Fedora installation using e2label following the
/boot will become /boot2 (while you should be able to share one /boot
partition, not certain about it)
/ will become /2
And change that in the kernel line for the second Fedora too.
