Reinstall grub


At the monent I have Dual boot with win xp and fedora core 1. I use windows bootloader, and has grub on his own unit, (install grub to /dev/hda... not mbr)
But since I don't use windows anymore I wish to switch to usin grub from the MBR. Is there a easy way to do this?
Sorry about the english.
