GRUB after Windows reinstallation

i had Windows 98 and Linux redhat 9 installed before. i reformatted the windows partition and reinstalled windows. now, grub no longer loads. how do i get grub working again? i have already tried running fdisk and configured the other two NON-DOS partitions to be active but it didnt work.

you have to reinstall grub because when you reinatlled windows you wiped out your MBR that had grub on it. I think reddhat will allow you to boot ot the cd and reinstall grub. if not you will have to get a redhat 9 bootdisk adn install it from there.
