You don't need a "startup disk". Do you have a LiveCD instead of an install CD? You don't say what Linux Distro you have been using. See e.g."All about Linux:How to Repair a Corrupt MBR and boot into Linux" at http://linuxhelp.blogspot.com/2005/1...-and-boot.html

My Distro

I have fedora core 4. Does the LiveCD has to be Fedora or can be other distribution since i only need the loader?

From the link:
Quote:
If you are using Fedora (RedHat) then the first CD is sufficient. But you may also use any of the live CDs like Knoppix, Ubuntu Live CD and so on.
Knoppix is seen as THE rescue disk, but other LiveCDs should work.
