Windows always overwrites the MBR. (Thats Windows)
Boot your linux OS with a rescue system. (At the prompt on CD 1 type "linux rescue"
find the root filesystem.
type grub <enter>
type find /etc/inittab
it will return something like (hd0,2)
the above device will be /dev/hda3 as grub uses a zero base
mount the device under /mnt
