    Boot Fedora after windows re install

    Hi,Currently I can dual boot windows and Fedora 6.But now windows will have to be reinstalled.After that ,I wont get the dual boot screen.So what should I do so that I can still access Fedora?This is very urgent...Please help.
    I used
    /sbin/mkbootdisk --verbose --iso --device /root/boot.iso 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen
    to create the boot.iso and burned it on a cd.

    But when the system restarts ,boot loader says that kernel is corrupt.

    Long back,with RedHat 9,I used a boot floppy to access my red hat installation.I am sure there has to be a way out.

    Hi biswajit,

    Welcome to the LinuxForums.

    boot up from Fedora Installation CD/DVD and type 'linux rescue' at boot: prompt. this will drop you at sheel prompt.
    execute this
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/hda
    press Ctrl+D two times. machine will reboot and GRUB will be back in business.
    if you have SATA harddisk, replace hda with sda in grub-install command.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
