Hi all.

I had previously installed windows xp. Then i installed ubuntu and dual booting was fine. Now my windows is corrupted. I need to either repair or reinstall it, and i think my mbr will be affected. I will test all this on vmware first. Any good article to help me out in this activity pls ?

There is a good write up on it.
I will be doing about the same thing at home as well.
You will pretty much just have to rebuild grub. should be fairly simple
