Dual boot of Win XP home and rh9.0

Posted 07-26-2006 at 08:11 AM by armenon1

After the installation of linux, bootloader was working fine. When I booted into the Win XP home, it ran the system restore. I did go with the system restore. N now I find that the linux grub does not start. It boots into the windows by default. I did not opt to store the boot file onto the floppy. Im stuck... What could be done? May I have immediate assistance?
