Dual-boot problem of xp and rh9

I have winxp and redhat9 in my laptop, they work fine until I formatted c and reinstall xp.
Now it goes into winxp directly, I can't go to linux.
Since there is no floppy drive on my laptop. I can't use floppy to boot into linux system.
Someone told me that I can use rh9 installation cd to recover grub.
Could anybody tell me how to do this?
Thanks a lot.

In order to boot RedHat in Rescue Mode (with the CD), follow the steps in this document.

Once the system is booted, the following command will install GRUB in the MBR.
/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda
