[svlug] emberassing ? about grub

I have a dual boot laptop with XP and linux.  I had to do some work to
solve XP and hardware problems before a trip which forced me to redo the
boot process for my hard disk.  I made a grub boot disk to reinstall grub
before I left, but unfortunately, I didn't test it.

Now the boot disk I carefully made won't work, but I still have a linux
partition on my hard disk.  Is there a way of reinstalling grub to access
my installed linux OS, without damaging xp?
Thanx for the advice.
