Now you see it, um...where'd it go?

I had red hat 9.0 installed on a second hard drive and winxp installed on my main drive. I had a problem with xp that was so severe that I needed to reinstall it. Can you believe that, a severe problem with windows? Who'd a thunk it? Anyways, I reinstalled and I lost my lilo boot loader. Win XP took it over. I read that I needed to boot into resucue mode by typing " linux rescue" at the boot prompt and it said it failed. No idea what else to do cuz I'm a bit noobish when it comes to linux so if anyone could help me get back in my rh box I'd appreciate it. It's been a month n a half and I'm entering severe withdrawl stage 2...j/k. Thanx in advance.

take your rh cd
and put it in the cdrom drive
the rh setup has a prompt on the first screen
I believe if you just press enter at the
prompt and continue the install as if
you were upgrading it will fix things.
