Chainloading windows and Mandriva would probably work out for you.
Install the grub for Mandriva in its partition if possible. (Partition 3)

If you are yet to install Fedora, select the advanced boot options check
box during install. Add the Mandriva entry using the pull down menus.
windows should already be installed as chainloader. Install Fedora to
the MBR for your drive.


Don't believe everything you hear or anything you say.
