Boot up knoppix CD
log in as superuser (needs it for admin privilege to alter system settings)
make a temporary directory in /mnt, say call it /mnt/hda9
mount your distressed knoppix in (hd0,8) which I assume to be known as hda9 in Linux. Grub counts from 0 so (hd0,8) should corresponds to hda9 in Linux.
change root to hda9, so that you are inside the distressed Knoppix
restore Grub back into the MBR of your hard disk hda
exit and reboot

The complete commands after booting up Knoppix CD are
Code:
su
mkdir /mnt/hda9
mount /dev/hda9 /mnt/hda9
chroot /mnt/hda9
grub-install /dev/hda
exit
reboot
if you have a Sata disk then change every "hda" to "sda".

Do you need me to alter all references of hda9 to hda8 in Post #2 and reprint here for you?
