You still need a boot loader (GRUB or LILO, if LILO is even still
supported with FC6).

But all is not lost. You can boot rescue mode from the DVD (type "linux
rescue" at the boot: prompt), let it find your installation, and install
GRUB. That will avoid the need to completely reinstall the OS. You can
do it something like this:

# /mnt/sysimage/sbin/grub
grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> setup (hd0)

That assumes that your root file system is on /dev/hda1 and that your
master drive (hda) is the boot device. YMMV. Otherwise you might have to
adjust the "(hd0,0)" and "(hd0)" values accordingly.
