Question Revive RH 8.0...?

I have reinstalled my copy of windows as it was corrputed, but the MBR was overwitten by windows, which grub i used previously to dual-boot with RH 8.0. I do not have any linux boot-up diskette, so how can I boot up RH again? and restore grub loader back?

Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from cd's, then throw ya RH cd in, get to the point of installing your loader i.e Lilo/Grub, then your back to having windows and RH, and don't worry it will pick up your windows partition....

If this doesn't work, well sorry , i haven't used RH 8.0, but this is the generic way of doing it...

Hope it helps...
