Lost my dual boot grub menu


I had installed Ubuntu and XP Professional on my machine a few months ago on my c: drive, well I added a 2nd drive so I could do Ubuntu on one and XP Pro on the other but after reinstalling XP on my second drive I noticed my grub menu was gone. Is there any way I can get this thing to boot back into Ubuntu or get the menu back? I'm eventually going to extend the ext partition the the first drive all the way for Ubuntu.

Thanks for any help,
Daylin

very common problem for newbies. Actually the bootloader of windows has over written that of ubuntu which was earlier there...
