How to add to grub?

I installed F-10 on this computer but in creating grub the installer
ignored the existing F-8 on drive /dev/sda. I thought it would present
me with a grub screen for selection of the other system but it didn't
happen. I don't actually need or want F8 but if I can make it work,
since it is already there, then I should be able to replace it with F0
or even Centos. I have a genealogy program [Ftree] that seg faults with
F-10 on both computers.
I began making a modified grub but when I got down to the last section I
find that the F8 drive contains no /boot/vmlinuz - ****. It does
however contain kernel rpm files in the yum cache.
Can someone tell me how to procede? Suggestions, forget it maybe?
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/,
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro
kernel /vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-170.2.35.fc10.i686 ro
kernel /vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-117.fc10.i686 ro
I added a line to fstab so that I can see the files on the 80g drive
