Yesterday i by mistake selected to install boot loader on First partition of linux instead on MBR. I have already Win98 + WinXP and was trying to install fedora core 1. Then i try to upgarde it and change boot loader by installing on MBR but i got message that i have not selected any package to install and thus boot laoder has not been installed.
help to change boot laoder from First partition of linux to MBR so that ican boot it from HDD not From Floppy.

You can select "customerize" and check the "Kernel Development", then you can install boot loader on MBR.

Or simply boot from the floppy into Fedora Croe1 and login as root.
# /sbin/grub-install /dev/hda
Then it will install Grub on MBR.
