Wink Reinstalling GRUB

I am asking about restoring GRUB in the MBR (Master Boot Record)
Currently I have 2 OS residing on my PC Windows and Red Hat 9.0 ('E'Drive)
I would like to wipe out the current Window OS on the C drive and reinstalling the windows OS again. I think the GRUB will be deleted also.
How would I restore the GRUB in the MBR?

Grub can be reinstalled by:

/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda

This (re-) installs GRUB into the MBR.

Be aware that after you delete GRUB by re-installing Windows
you need a Rescue Floppy or CD to boot into Linux and reinstall GRUB.
