Restoring GRUB

I installed Windows on a Linux box and made it dual boot. I am not getting the GRUB window anymore when I boot the computer (it boots into Window by default). How can I restore this, so I can boot into Linux? Thanks.

steps to reinstall GRUB
1.- Boot from first FC CD or use the RESCUE CD
2. - type "linux rescue"
3. - rescue program will find your FC linux partition and mount it to /mnt/sysimage
4. - type chroot /mnt/sysimage
5. - type grub-install /dev/hda (this command install grub into MBR on first HDD)
6. - type exit
7. - hit ctr-alt-del to reboot your linux box - and see the expected results :-)
