Bye bye Ubuntu? (and Windows)

so I had Windows and Ubuntu which were working quite perfectly...and then I tried installing Mandriva, now Windows and Ubuntu is nowhere to be seen.

Did the Windows boot loader just got eclipsed by the Mandriva boot loader or did Windows and Ubuntu got sent to kingdom come?

1) Whats the best and easiest course of action to take to replace the Windows bootloader as the default bootloader?

2)If question number 1 gets answered successfully, how will I incorporate Mandriva as a boot option under the Windows boot loader?
