Dual booting and GRUB

I slapped an extra hard drive in my computer and installed Rad Hat 9.0 on it. I already had Windows XP on my original hard drive. I used GRUB as the boot loader. Unfortunately, after I installed Linux, I had to remove the new hard drive to give it back to the guy it belonged to. (I didn't think he'd ever need it again) I didn't even have time to mess around with the GRUB configuration files. Now, when I start my computer, I just get a screen that says GRUB at the top. Until I get another hard drive to reinstall Linux, what can I do to make Windows run?

Boot from a DOS bootdisk and type fdisk /mbr. That should reset your master boot record.
