No bootdisk, how can I access linux?

I recently had to reinstall winXP, which wiped the MBR. Fortunately, I'd made a boot disk when I installed slackware 9.1 on my other hd. This was working fine until someone "borrowed" the disc. I'm still finding my feet with linux and I have no idea how to get access to my linux drive now. Tried googling but I just found stuff about creating boot disks from within linux or during installation., which wasn't much help. Could anyone tell me how to get at linux, or at least point me in the direction of a helpful how-to?

Many thanks,
