Probably. But why not boot your FC5 disk 1 in rescue mode?
- At the boot prompt, put "linux rescue".
- Let it mount your root filesystem and its dependents.
- At the shell prompt:
- Edit /boot/grub/grub.conf as needed, then
exit # or ^D from chroot
exit # or ^D from rescue mode to reboot
- Eject the CD.
That said, I've never seen an update farble the grub.conf, so I'd be
surprised if the solution is that simple. You may have to rerun the
procedure above, but instead of the edit, do a
grub-install /dev/hda # assuming that's your boot drive.

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities -- his
eternal power and divine nature -- have been clearly seen, being
understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
