Exclamation Problem with Boot up loader

Well i wanted to start Linux again.. however the boot up loader doesn't show up anymore :-/

Is there a way to set up the Boot loader again

After when i installed Linux, i set up Windows Xp on another Harddrive. And since then i have never seen the Boot loader.

What can i do?

Grab a live CD and boot it. Then it will depend on if you have grub or lilo.

Mount the linux partition,
chroot to that mount point
then go a grub-install or lilo command to install the bootloader
