    Default Lost Grub boot loader | How to reinstall?

    Hi All,
    I had a dual boot system to boot Vista and Suse 10.3. Its was working fine but today I had to do system recovery for Vista due to some annoying thing in windows. The recovery [I hate it now] probably deleted Grub boot loader from MBR. So as a result my system does not have a dual boot anymore. It always boots Windows Vista now. This is what I have tried so far to resolve this issue:
    Boot system from Suse 10.3 DVD and
    1. Try Repair Installed system. Result:It gives an error and finally Prompts with a menu where I can select Installation and system update and other things, which also did not help.
    2. Rescue System. Result: Does not help, same as above.

    I have almost everything in my suse partition and most importantly I don't want to loose my 10.3.
    I was thinking if I could reinstall Grub and things could start working again. If that's the right path then how can i reinstall it?
    Please help.

    Here is how:
    1. Boot the system from DVD.
    2. Choose Repair Installed System
    3. System Installation and Update
    4. Choose Boot system -> this will give you $ prompt
    5. login as root
    6. Enter this command: grub-install --recheck <root partition>
    7. In most <root partition> is /dev/hda

    Thanks everyone!!
