I'm running a PC with a SATA drive and an IDE drive. The SATA drive, which
boots the machine, is running Win XP. But Windows doesn't see the IDE drive
and I can't access it. This IDE drive has Linux on it. I used to boot into
it using a Linux boot loader. Recently my drive crashed and I installed a
new one. But I lost the boot loader in the process. Does anybody know how
I can install just the boot loader on my new drive so I can boot into Linux
on the other machine? Thanks!

You can restore your linux boot loader using your linux
installation CD. You should ask how in one of the linux newsgroups.
