u donot need to reinstall linux
just put in ur cd go in linux rescue
for that type
1 linux rescue
 and then enter
it will throw u at the prompt
then type
2 chroot /mnt/sysimage
3 for grub type grub-install /dev/hda
this will install the boot loader on the mbr of ur harddisk
u should also read the grub info pages for any risks.
