I have the answer at fedoraforum.org (IF it would load up!!!!!!)

I asked the same question, but the site won't load up!

EDIT: Oh, I have a different user name, so pm me if you can access the site and want to know how to do it.

Alright the file you need to change is /etc/grub.conf

You should have a list of entries near the bottom that look like this

Code:
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.7-10)
	root (hd0,1)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.7-10 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
	initrd /initrd-2.4.7-10.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.8-12)
	root (hd0,1)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.8-12 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
	initrd /initrd-2.4.8-12.img
title Windows 2000
	rootnoverify (hd0,0)
	chainloader +1

You would be doing this to the old entries
Code:
#title Red Hat Linux (2.4.7-10)
#	root (hd0,1)
#	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.7-10 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
#	initrd /initrd-2.4.7-10.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.8-12)
	root (hd0,1)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.8-12 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
	initrd /initrd-2.4.8-12.img
title Windows 2000
	rootnoverify (hd0,0)
	chainloader +1
And the problem is solved
