    Boot using fedora 11 DVD/CD and select Install in GUI method. It will automatically detect ur existing fedora and will ask for update or new installation. Select update and on nxt screen select update boot loader. Tats all.

    1) boot using Fedora DVD
    2) at boot prompt, enter linux rescue. this takes you to linux rescue mode
    3) run the command chroot /mnt/sysimage
    4) now, run grub-install /dev/???? (eg: grub-install /dev/sda0 to install grub to first partition on sata 0 HDD)

    sometimes, when you run linux rescue at boot prompt, it takes care of everything.
