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. 

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.

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.


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


peace out.
