    Windows wipe my MBR. I can't start grub


    hi!
    i tried to install windows 98 using the cdrom of windows xp. I don't have a floppy drive. I formated one partition with windows xp, but i couldn't install windows98. That was quite stupid. Windows wipe out my MBR and i can't use grub. I installed gentoo following the instructions they gave for the install. So my partition table looks something like this:
    /dev/hda1 /boot 31 Mb
    /dev/hda2 swap 512 Mb
    /dev/hda3 / 10Gb
    /dev/hda4 fat32 2Gb
    Please, can someone help me?

    Fire up your live gentoo cd and do the following.

    mkdir /mnt/hda3
    mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/hda3
    chroot /mnt/hda3
    mount /dev/hda1 /boot

    Then follow these directions.
