I wanna help you but I really don't understand what's the problem? You deleted GRUB? Is that it? In that case you can boot of the CD, and then type (as root) grub-install /dev/hda at the CLI, and it will reinstall GRUB for you.

Can Linux boot without the GRUB boot loader? Clearly the answer is yes. GRUB is but one of many boot loaders, there's also SYSLINUX. Loadlin, and LILO that are commonly available with many Linux distributions, and there are quite a varietty of other boot loaders that can be used with Linux, too. Even a DOS boot loader can be made to boot a Linux kernel if you supply it with the correct information.
The key question to ask is whether or not you still have a boot block and a boot kernel on the disk partition containing your Linux system. As long as you do, then there are numerous different boot loaders that you can use.
I happen to like the GNU GRUB boot loader best of all, but it's certainly not the only alternative you have available.
