If you have another installation you can boot then create a grub entry 
in that grub.conf for the F16 distro, boot that and then, as root:

grub2-install --force /dev/<your /boot partition device>

If you don't have another bootable distro, boot the DVD and use rescue 
mode and the chroot option and then do the grub2-install
