boot prob with madrake 9.1 (lnx4win) and winxp


after fdisk/mbr I've lost the option to boot into Linux.
(1st part winxp, 2nd *.*, 3rd Mandrake 9.1 lnx4win)
Boot menu is history, now my pc boots str8 into winxp.
Now I can't get into Mandrake becauze
there aint any "link" to it.
How can I restore boot menu, or get into Mandrake?

Thanks ahead,
