Fedora and Ubuntu not working out with GRUB

I have tried befre but nothing works out proprly.
I have Ubuntu
I try to Install Fedora Core 1.
When Fedora Cora is finished Installing It doesnt show Ubuntu on Grub.
If I re-install Ubuntu and put grub on then Fedora wont show.
I also have Windows 98 but that is always on the list as DOS or Windows 95/98

you'll have to modify the file /boot/grub/grub.conf in order to have your 2 distributions
available.

could you post the content of your current grub.conf and the list of your partitions ?
# 3  
Move boot entery of the first linux distro from it's /boot/grub/grub.conf to /boot/grub/grub.conf of the second one.
# 4  
Is there some sort of command I can type? Because I dont know anything about grub and there is no useful info on the Grub homepage.
# 5  
There is. No one could help you if you do not want to read.

This task is extremely easy and I even told you what to do, so find section begining like
Code:
title "distro1"

and move it to the active grub's config.
# 6  
Ok but HOW do I add it to the active Grub's congig
