Its simple..
boot from Linux CD , & boot prompt give
#boot:linux rescue

After asking some questions to you ,it will automatically goes to command prompt
At the command prompt, give this command :

# grub install /dev/hda

After that reboot ur System........
It will definitly work , if Linux partotion exists...

Cheers

Gaurav
