I tried to upgrade one of my servers from FC4 to FC5, that is a dual

I had a set of CD that passed mediacheck on two other machines so I
decided not to carry out a mediacheck on this server.At CD nr.4
upgrade stopped and machine was rebooted.
In the meantime I burnt a new CD that passed mediacheck, so I
re-started upgrading.
But when I re-booted the machine the Fedora entry was missing from my
Grub menu and only Windows 2000 was available!!! I re-started the
installing procedure (it was very fast) and I told to anaconda to
modify grup but again I found only Windows2000 entry.
I managed to mount the system with rescue disk, but how I read and
modify the grub.conf when I am in the shell???

What is happening???
I don't know. Did you get to the end of the installation the second time ?

yes, I got to the end of installation.
Is any way to install/modify grub options by installation CD??
Boot the rescue CD, "chroot /mnt/sysimage", "vi /etc/grub.conf"

i succeeded to start FC5 by Grub hand instructions, but when I log in
I get the following message (sorry for the bad translation):

What shall I do?? Re-install might be the fastest option....

Any comment welcome

That error message seems to suggest that you still have the FC4 openssh-clients package, as FC5's version of /usr/bin/ssh-agent is linked against libcrypto.so.6.

I'd try booting to runlevel 3 and doing a "yum update"
