It's not too difficult. Windows will overwrite your MBR, so you should get used to doing this if you continue to dual boot with Windows. I just recently had to do this when I decided to dual boot Debian and Gentoo.

I used

Now, your's should be easier, since your setup hasn't changed, just reinstalled Windows. What I had to do was look at Gentoo's config file and add it to Debian's then do a new GRUB install.

make sure you install windows first is the easiest. If you do linux first your MBR will be overwritten.
