Talking Grub Query


Hi everbody, I am going to have a small dilemma on my hands soon. I am going to reinstall Windows XP (or more to the point; install XP to a SATA Raid array) once I have done this however how do i get grub installed again on that array's MBR. Is this possible by booting from the linux CD and setting up grub again? Any tips on this will be much appreciated.

Cheers.

Yes you can use boot Red Hat install CD into rescue mode, tell it to boot your Linux partition, and then run grub-install again.
