Question My boot up is gone


Hello, I had windows XP on my master hard drive and RH9 on my slave drive. When i turned my PC on it would ask me what system i would like to boot. Well i had to reinstall windows on the master drive, once i was finished doing this the grub boot loader was gone. All my info is still on my slave drive. How do i get the boot loader back?

Try booting into rescue mode with redhat CD, then invoke
"grub-install /dev/hda" (or wherever your master drive is)
