Post Uninstall GRUB(2?) from Grub Rescue prompt.


I had lubuntu(11.10) but I'm moving to a new computer so I thought I'd do some experimenting on my computer(I don't keep any important stuff on it its all on a different one) so while on the path to installing FreeDOS withought distroying xp I formatted the drive Linux was on (I have two hard drives: one for windows and one for whatever I want; excluding windows no os has managed to stay on my system longer than a month, I get tired of it and remove it.)
Then GRUB came up sayn'
Cant find drive: supercalifragalisticexpelalidoshous
grub rescue>

So is there a way to remove it from there or should I just repeat a past accsedent and install GAG over it?

Thanks.

PS
Is FreeDOS Linuxy enough to be on these forums?
It is free after all.

You will have to install another boot-loader to overrwrite the MBR code.
