restoring grub menu

hi people,
finally pushed myself to write one about a technical issue. recently ,I reinstalled windows vista successfully but after restart i didn't see any grub menu to boot linux(ubuntu).At that instant, i was shocked as i thought linux was gone.Since vista had overwtitten the mbr so it used to boot vista directly.I tried to restore grub menu through a live cd of linux which is done through typing some commands in terminal.Basically, anybody can copy those commands from www.ubuntuforums.org . But those commands were useless for my system as the "stage1" file was washed away from grub folder.finally,i downloaded an iso image of "super grub disk" and made a cd. then i booted through that cd and everything started working fine.when i saw grub menu again, i was so happy.
