I think I know how, but first tell me in which order you installed. Furthermore Fedora is a bit "grumpy" when it comes to grub and such.....

Did you install XP after Fedora?
If not I don't really understand
Or is it simply so that you must scroll the list in grub? :)

I recall scorp123 posted the following when there were others (to include me) that had problems with grub when Fedora was installed.
-----------------------------

Fedora and grub:

for the guy who thinks fedora broke grub, fedora stores its config files in /etc/grub.conf rather than /boot/grub/menu.lst other than that its the same.
------------------------------
I personally had already given up on Fedora and didn't look at making changes, but kept this just in case ...
