installed a little kde, it switched to it on the reboot, and most stuff is missing, no access to a shell of any kind

So for F10,
sh:grub>configfile (hd0,1)/boot/grub/grub.cfg

For Mint
sh:grub>configfile (hd1,1)/boot/grub/grub.cfg

For Other Linux ?
sh:grub>configfile (hd3,1)/boot/grub/grub.cfg

No windows? hah!
There is a new entry since the last time you've sent the fdisk output, 
and that is in (hd1,3). I am not sure what that is and I guess it is to 
boot up Mint from Fedora grub at mbr (in a roundabout way) but ....... I 
really don't know.

Also you might try
sh:grub>configfile (hdx,y)/boot/grub.cfg

as it may be possible for Fedora to put it in /boot/ rather than 
/boot/grub/. Last I use RH was long, long time ago and it was in lilo.
