Yes, it's grub2.  Welcome to the new Fedora world.  Next RH version will
almost certainly have it.   I have a page about it for Fedora

http://home.roadrunner.com/~computertaijutsu/grub2.html, that covers
minor modifications in Fedora, because with the advent of Fedora 16, it
became the default.  (On the other hand, most of what is on the web right
now is for Ubuntu, which has been using it for awhile.)

Most of the differences I see are pretty minor--not good or bad, per se,
just different, such as using update-rc as something similar to
chkconfig, editing /etc/network/interfaces (I think), rather than
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, and so on. 

Judging from job postings in the NYC area, though, RH/CentOS are still
pretty much dominant.
