Make sure your Linux boot floppy works first. Install Grub where it
should have been installed in the first place, and be sure to add the
windoze partition to its menu if it didn't show there after
grub-install. Now find your windoze EBD (rescue floppy). If you don't
have one, it can easily be made from any windoze 98 machine's control
panel. Boot the windoze EBD and do 'SYS C:'.
