this is because fedora over wrote your ubuntu boot sector and fedora does
not recognize ubuntu partition.

in fedora, directory "/boot/grub", file "grub.conf", add following
between ++++ at end of file.

++++

title Ubuntu os ($version.number)
   root (hd$x,$y)
   kernel /boot/vmlinuz-$version.number ro root=LABEL=/ \
     devfs=nomount resume=/dev/hd$x$y acpi=force vga=794
   initrd /boot/initrd-$version.number.img

++++
Thank you g. Thank you very much. You have solved my problem. If you permit I will mention your name to the forums and mailing list where I have posted my queries with the solution for others.
You can check "Dual Boot Query(not same as oters)" thread  in Fedora forum for the mistakes I have made and the solution.

Thank you very much again. 

*notes:*
replace "$version.number" with ubuntu version
replace "$x" with drive number. where values are 0, 1, 2, 3.
replace "$y" with partition number. where values are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.

"root=" may be "sda$y", "sdb$y", "sdc$y", "sdd$y", or "UUID" for partition.

use "acpi=force" to force loading of 'acpi'.

use "vga=794" to display a screen sizing of 54 x 120

"\" is a 'line break' and is not actually used.

*also:*
look at what is currently in your fedora 13 "grub.conf" file to get
idea of structure.

if your 'ubuntu' partition is mounted, open file "/boot/grub/grub.conf"
and copy "title" info to your f13 grub.conf file.


hth.


btw.
 if you would, please post in "text/plain" and not "text/html"
 thank you.
