Deleted all my bootloader stuff from windows/linux system

I was most intelligently installing another copy of my existing linux on a partition that formerly housed win98. When not until afterwards I realised I went not only over 98 but my Linux (Grubb) and XP bootloaders

I have re installed XP and then reinstalled Linux so now I have both again. I would really like to be able to boot my other Linux partition (The one I went over the boot loader for)

Where do I start?

If your partition tables are okay, then you should be able to mount the other partition into a directory in /mnt.

$>: mkdir /mnt/oops

$>: mount /dev/hdx# /mnt/oops

$>: less /mnt/oops/boot/grub/grub.conf This should show you the entry for that partition in that grub.conf. Compare it with the entry for the current grub.conf in the currently active partition. You only need the differences for the entry, I don't think you need to have duplicate entries. Man grub and review it. I think you'll figure it out pretty easily from there. I think it is a straight forward entry for each partition and O.S..
