Need to reinstall windows on a dual boot system

I am dual boot windows 2003 server, and debian 3.1 unstable, with grub boot loader.

I need to reinstall windows, which of course will overwrite the mbr. How do I get my grub file to reinstall?

Use this link to walk you through it:

Basically, you need to either make a boot disk or use a live CD to boot grub (or chroot into your system) and then reconfigure grub.
