Express Solaris 6/06 reinstall grub

I have got three OSs, Win2003, Linux FC5, Solaris 6/06. I used Solrais's grub (not Linux) as the boot manager for these 3 OSs

Recently I reinstalled fresh copy of windows , I lost Solaris's grub.

Can I use soalris CD1 to reinstall the grub again.

When I tried to boot from Solaris CD1, I could not get into grub shell.

I am familiar with reinstalling Linux grub,

Have a look at this posting:
To install the mbr, here's the command:
/sbin/installgrub -m /boot/grub/stage1 /boot/grub/stage2 /dev/rdsk/c0d0s0
Thanks for that, it did, what I was looking for.
