MBR deleted,how to rewrite GRUB in it?

2 days back i formatted my C drive on which windows 2000 professional was installed.My Linux rh9 is installed on my E drive.
Now after formatting C drive, GRUB was no longer in the MBR,so i made a grub boot floppy by copying the stage* files and i am able to log into my linux using the boot floppy.
Now the problem is i don't know how to rewrite GRUB into MBR and it doesn't sound good to use the boot floppy everytime i log into linux.
So how to get around with this problem?

How to rewrite GRUB into the MBR again?

An rpm package of Grub came along with your RedHat9, so reinstall it and re-configure it to include Windows. That should work.
