deleted my /boot dir!! please help

I have been running arch64 0.8 for a few months now and have spent a long time tuning everything jsut the way I like it. Now the problem is I have just removed my "/boot" dir and of course it will no longer boot! I tried to fix this by running the arch installer, mounting my partition as /mnt and then re-sintalling grub and the kernel. This almost worked as the PC now boots but then hangs after loading Udev. I think this is becuase I had various things like ndiswrapper on boot which the fresh kernel does not have.

Anyways I'm desperate to re-create my /boot folder so that I can boot back into my system. Can anyone help? I do not have a backup.

Reinstall your kernel and your bootloader, that should do it.

ok I did this but with an old 0.8 beta cd. Just tried with a new 0.8 stable and it worked perfect! Thanks - Arch is the best!
