I had wanted to simply keep the Fedora system in place, but I can see I need to learn more about scripting of the GRUB bootloader. However, is there any single command I can give to put the Fedora version back in place since this is not old style BIOS? In the long run I do have to do this, but for now I just hand edited entries in the Ubuntu version of the boot loader.
