how do i install grub in the mbr?


i have installed win 98 se, win xp pro, mandrake, and redhat in my system. i wanted to use grub from mandrake as a boot menu for all my os's. the problem is, i recently reformatted and re-installed my win98 (its placed in the first partition of hda), so i cannot boot my other os's now.

i can boot my redhat os, but the problem is, i do not know how to configure grub such that i can choose which os i want to boot.

how can i do it?

Run grub under linux (assuming it's installed), use 'setup (hd0)' at grub prompt.
