    Mandrake 9.1 Bootloader Problem


    Hi,
    I am using a multi boot system where I use WIN98,WINXP and Mandrake 9.1 HP . I had some problems wih my WIN98 and had to re-install it. I lost my Mandrake CD's and Rescue Disk. Now my MBR has changed after WIN 98 installation and I am not able to get into Linux.

    I even tried GAG but it didnt work. I got a message that 'Invalid Boot Sector' while using GAG. Is there any other way in correcting my boot loader?? Can someone send me a installable version of the Rescue Disk for Mandrake??

    Thanks

    Abhi

    You can probably download a boot disk if you do a little googling for one. Otherwise, I'd suggest d/ling another mandrake disk and reinstalling lilo from rescue mode.

    This always happens when you install windows over linux...
