I'm guessing you had Grub installed on MBR. Windows overwrites the MBR on install (perhaps it does so in other situations aswell). So you could boot up with a boot-diskette and re-install grub. Since I've been using lilo lately, I can't remember from the top of my head how to do it, but a man grub may point you in the right direction.

grub-install /dev/hda ought to do it. :)

Last time when I needed to format my C drive, I had been adviced to copy the grub info into a flopy before I formatted and then boot into linux after the formating is complete. Ones I logged in I needed to copy back the grub info to MBR.
