when installing win xp it writes itself to the mbr.
now how can i get grub to load again at bootup?
maybe this thread(s) will help:

personally, I'd first try chrooting and using the grub-install hdx method....
don't get it - there are several people saying different things...
so i boot the arch-cd to the commandline and then i enter what command...?
you can install a grub_for_dos to boot your arch.
Just down a grub_for_dos, extra GRLDR from it, and add one line to your boot.ini:
c:grldr="Start from grub"
Then you need to will extra the menu.lst file to your first partition, add an option like this:
title Arch Linux kernel (hdx,y)/boot/vmlinuz26 vga=791 root=/dev/discs/discx/party+1 ro initrd (hdx,y)/boot/initrd.img
you could install grub to the MBR overwriting the windows loader...
doesn't work for me!
how can i boot inot linux konsole to run grub from there ???
what to do then?
would be nice if anyone told me how to do this EXACTLY (step by step)!
boot into the cdrom
mount /dev/hdxy /mnt/
first 3 steps worked for me
i had to do: mount /dev/discs/disc0/part3 /mnt
so now i have my root partition mount on /mnt
but in the last step i always get something like "unrecognized filesystem"
what do i have to pass here? (i only got one hd)
do i have to run grub and then root (hd0,0) and setup (hd0) after that ?
grub-install should take care of root(blabal) setup(bla) deal. Try passing --no-floppy to grub-install or --root-directory=/mnt/boot/.
Otherwise, forget it and enter "grub" then do the root(blabla) and setup(blabal) thing. "quit" will get out of it.
i finally ran these commands and when i rebooted there was some flickering and then a smiley and i couldn't boot anything.
i've reinstalled arch now :evil:
