    If you use DOS fdisk, which can be found on a WIN98 startup disk, which is the fdisk we are discussing.
    If you type "fdisk /mbr" in an attempt to restore your Linux bootloader, It will not work.
    I just experimented on an old Linux system.
    And after I rebooted, Grub was gone.
    And I received the message, "missing operating system".

    Read more about x86 boot architecture.

    You should know that there is not only Master Boot Record, but could also be bootsectors of partitions.
