I have installed Fedora and Grub is set to Boot into Windows first, but I cannot seem to boot into Win98 Safe Mode by holding down the F8 key. Is there a solution to this as I like to use Safe Mode for defragging and repair solutions.

Your help is appreciated.

The best way is to set windows to boot into safe mode, I can't remember exactly how to do it, but I think its in msconfig. That way you don't have to deal with the timing of pressing F8.
