Steps to recover dual-boot mbr if windows trashes it:
1) boot the system into "rescue mode" with the linux cd/dvd
2) chroot /mnt/sysimage
3) grub-install /dev/hda (or whatever drive your linux boot partition should be)

See this link.

Welcome to LQ.

Did you do some research? This is what I found using google.
