    see if your distro had a bootable CD. If so, boot it and see if there's
    a "recover" mode where it'll reinstall a bootloader.

    o.k. try this:

    boot from your linux-cd. Choose
    linux rescue

    Redhat/Fedora will look for an installed linux.
    You have to
    ( perhaps mount /mnt/sysimage )
    chroot /mnt/sysimage

    start grub with
    grub

    root (hd0,1) # linux root partiton
    setup (hd0) # install in mbr
    quit

    this should install grub to the mbr. then
    exit

    bye

    Boot from the install CD in "rescue" mode. Mount the linux partition,
    chroot to the root of that partition, edit your grub config file
    (remember that your linux disk is now hda instead of hdb) and reinstall
    the boot loader.
