Please! do us all a favour and do not quote digest mail content. Use

To your questions, you need to install grub (or lilo) in the MBR of the
boot drive or at least in the logical partition of your Fedora
installation where it can be found by another main bootloader. And yes,
Fedora does not come with NTFS support - and I don't think that will
ever change. The link http://linux-ntfs.sf.net/ was posted here so many
