Repoint MBR to Grub

I dual boot WinXP and Suse10.1. I installed grub not in the mbr, but the mbr points to grub. I just had to reformat WinXP and it therefore erased the mbr. I know that 10.1 is still installed, but how do i get the MBR to point back to grub.

I tried searching, but could not find a topic that fit this problem (mabye i used the wrong terms).

thank you

Boot SuSE from the installation cd. You should see a menu. There is an option to boot from the hard drive.

Then read the grub manual, how to install grub to the MBR.
