help in getting grub back

i know this question must have been asked a thounsand times now but
m writing this only after reading some of the replies since i wasn't quite able to get what i wanted

:::::;query ::::

i had red hat 9 installed in my third partition i.e in e:\ and had grub as the boot loader , recently i installed win98 in my c:\

now the problem is i don't get the grub menu now i.e my pc now straight away boots in win98 without askin for any dual boot option

please tell me to how to get my grub loader back

from wht i've read from other posts wht i could figure out is that i'll have to re-install grub but i've also forgotten to how to make a bootable floppy to boot the linux partition , i just remember that it was something related to rawrite file

plz help me to get my grub back coz i just can't tolerate windows any more

thank u very much

dd if=bootdisk.img of=/dev/fd0 or
rawrite bootdisk.img > /dev/fd0
