how to open Ubuntu in dual boot system

I had dual boot system with XP as the primary partition.
XP became corrupted and I reformatted and made a clean install of this partition which has removed the grub loader for Ub on second partition.
Is there any way to get back to Ubuntu without deleting this partition and reloading it from my live disc?

You should use your live-cd and grub-install command to restore grub in MBR. Full command will depend on your drives configuration, so read man grub-install.
