    @Desmataks, The bootloaders of both (Ubuntu & Fedora) won't be merged.
    Whichever O.S you install last will write the bootloader in the MBR. In your case Fedora
    will write it's bootloader (GRUB) in the MBR. Anyway, even if Fedora is not showing
    Ubuntu in the boot menu, you can make it appear by editing the GRUB's file.

    I dunno if both will go well with each other. Some label problems with FC5 gave me a very hard time dual booting it with Ubuntu. Grub of one wouldn't boot the other. Otherwise there's no problem multibooting linux systems. I dunno if anyone has dual booted FC5 and Ubuntu 6.06. But, I am not trying it again, Ubuntu and SLED working fine for me now.
