Newbie: Reinstalled windows, can't boot Fedora


Hi,
I have a simple problem. I had a dual boot Fedora Core 3 and Windows (both on seperate drive, with Windows being on primary). Now I had to reinstall Windows XP and it has written over the boot application GRUB. How do I bring GRUB back?
Thanks!!

It's been a while since I had to do this, so I'm a bit rusty on the details, but here goes...
You need to re-install grub. Bood of your Fedora CD (or DVD as the case may be) and get to a text prompt. It should be an option like "Rescue Console" or "Text Console" or some such. Once there, it should be as simple as typing "grub-install /dev/hda", or whatever hard drive you installed to.

Good luck.
