If Windows did not overwrite the Linux partitions ... then you need to boot into your Linux enviro and reinstall Grub or Lilo whatever you were using.

In the future the rule is Windows first always, then Linux. Windows does not play well with others ....

I am not sure what distro you installed? I am assuming Redhat/Fedora

Boot your system with the first Install CD. At the

Boot:

prompt, type linux rescue

Follow the instructions.

When you are dropped at the # prompt, type

chroot /mnt/sysimage (all this info is given to you during rescue... read the screens carefully).

now type

grub-install /dev/hda (again I am assuming it is your first disk)

exit and reboot.
