Restoreing MBR & Creating USB Bootable Pendrive

How do I make a USB bootable disk.

I have a 64 MB USB Pendrive and want to use that to restore my Master Boot Record.

I had a dual boot Win XP and Linux system, but I deleted my Linux partition by mistake.
So my laptop wont boot into windows also as my MBR is corrupted and all I get is a Grub boot prompt.

I dont have a floppy drive. So I want to cereate a USB bootable drive and use that to restore my MBR using : fdisk /mbr command.

So, How do I create a USB bootable pen drive?

(Or any other method to restore my MBR and get my windows running? )

1. Take your flash drive and yourself to your friend's house, who has a computer with XP.
2. Ask him kindly to format your flash drive as bootable.
3. Ask him to copy fdisk to the newly bootable flash drive.
4. Buy him a coke.
5. Take it back home and use the bootable drive.
