Recover Linux after installing Windows XP

Recently I had to repair windows xp due to some errors. But after the repair i found that i'm unable to log in to Debian because Grub boot loader is missing and instead grub windows boot loader has activated. I did some research and found out following process.

   1: sudo grub

Then grub> will appear

   1: find /boot/grub/stage1 

The reply was (hd0, 8) so i had to use them as parameters in later commands

   1: root (hd0,8) 
   2: setup (hd0) 
   3: quit 

Easy as that .. that did solve my problem
