how to restore linux bootloader after windows installation.

I had dual operating systems on my machine, SUSE and Windows XP. There was some problem in Windows XP so I had no other option except reinstalling it. After installation xp bootloader overwritten the linux boot loader.
How can I restore the linux boot loader so that I can boot SUSE as well as Windows XP?
I cannot install SUSE again.

I know in Slackware you can skip to the Install Boot Loader option and it will install it to wherever you want. Not sure about the SUSE cd though.
