It looks like someone already filed a bug for this same error:
Did you mount the EFI partition (~200MB FAT partition) under /boot/efi?
This will be necessary so that the efi images and grub config can get written to the partition.
I have not dual booted from a single disk, but I have done so with Fedora installed to an external and it went pretty smoothly. GRUB2 even went so far as to create menu options for booting to Mac OS X (though I admittedly have not tried these.)
If you can get it working, you may have good luck blessing the grub2 boot image so you can select either Linux or OS X from the grub nenu without having to flip flop rebooting using the Mac Utility or remembering to hold the alt key when you reboot (though refit will probably fill the same roll - incidentally you probably don't need refit if you're just dual booting Fedora and OS X)
Have a look at this if you have some time. It was written for F16, but I have been playing with F17 and it all more or less still works the same.
