    How to boot Linux after Fdisk/mbr...


    I have Win 98 , win Xp and RH Linux 8 on my PC, the Grub was the boot loader. By mistake I run Fdisk/mbr. Now the Grub is not available and I can boot only Win 98 and win Xp. I also dont have Linux boot floopy. So what can I do to boot Linux and to install a boot loader with Linux in the menu? Pl suggest and help. Thanks.

    yeah, you can use the red hat cd1 and then type linux rescue at the boot prompt and you should be able to get it thru there, then you can reinstall grub
