The FAQ used to have a section pertaining to GRUB but it's been removed.

Try this stanza in /boot/grub/custom.cfg in your Fedora system:
menuentry 'OpenBSD' {
   set root=(hd3,1)
   chainloader +1

That presumes a non-UEFI system with OpenBSD installed to /dev/sdd1

For a UEFI system use this instead:
menuentry 'OpenBSD' {
   set root=(hdX,Y)
   chainloader /EFI/BOOT/bootx64.efi
Replace X & Y with the correct identifiers for the EFI system partition.

It might be best to use the UUID rather than the block device, to do that replace the set root= line with
search --fs-uuid $uuid --set=root
Replace $uuid with the actual UUID of the target partition.

If you have any problems then it's probably best to start a new thread because this is off-topic here.
Linux is for people who hate Windows. BSD is for people who love UNIX.
