Do you mean it's a grub bootloader crush in MBR ? If so, it is worst
case. In this case, I will borrow old FC1 CD-ROMs, then boot from it
and grub setup to write bootloader in MBR. And I have 2 /boot area,
such as /dev/hda2 (rescue & fresh) and /dev/hdb1 (fc3). I think
/dev/hdb1 has highest crush probability.
