Need some GRUB....

Please forgive me.....

I have to use winxp for my work.....that said-it went renegade and ate my my GRUB.
(I'll spare you the tale...)

I'm using Knoppix to access the web and my files for now(xp isn't allowed on the internet....)

But I can no longer boot to my ArchLinux partition and I need GRUB back.

How do I put it back where it belongs?  I'm afraid i don't understand the cryptic
command line utility and I've spent a day and a half trying to figure how to do this..

Thanking you all in advance for your help.

BTW I'm new to Linux and have fallen in love with Arch!

Re: Need some GRUB....

Try chroot-ing into your Arch partition from Knoppix, and then use grub-install...

Re: Need some GRUB....

um, I may need a little further instruction on that,

Don't know what chroot is, tried it anyway and ended up looking at
the same cryptic grub console config utility that  i had previously had no luck with....
Still pretty green here.....

thanx
