how to write grub on another HD
I have XP on the boot HD, Ubuntu 8.04 on the other
HD, and grub on the MBR of the Windows side. Then
the Windows HD went bad and I need to get grub onto
the other side so I can change the boot sequence

abandon the Windows side. Booting from a live CD
is no problem, but I can't figure how to install
grub onto the Linux side, which has been partitioned.

simple write to the proper place be done in a
If switching the boot sequence is not enough (don't
