a problem could be that you have to do this every time after a kernel
update is installed, therefore i would do the following:
install fc6 boot loader to fc6 root partition /dev/hdb1 (grub-install)
chainload in Kbuntu's boot configuration - iirc menu.lst - fc6.
title FC 6
could do the job.
i hope hd1,0 is correct.
advantage: no need to change the grub entries after updates
disadvantage: you will see two grub menu's (1st Kunbuntu, 2cd fedora)
