    Windows overwrites grub with it's own bootloader. Probably the easiest way is to download the supergrub cd and boot from that to restore your grub

    Boot up from RHEL installation CD/DVD and execute boot linux rescue at prompt or select Recovery option in Menu. It will drop at shell prompt.
    Execute this
    Code:
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/sda
    exit 
    exit
    In case it doesn't work, replace sda with hda in grub-install command.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
