[conspire] Help with GRUB

At a Cabal a while ago, I was helped set up a PC to dual boot 'doz and Debian.

Recently windoz developed an ailment and had to be reinstalled.  I totally expected the MBR to be re-written and I would have to do some follow up to access GRUB.

Well that is NOT the state I found myself in.  Early during the windoz install, the system was rebooted and went directly to windoz.  However after some drivers were installed and the system rebooted again, the boot process went to GRUB.  That, I suppose, was the good news. 

The BAD news is that GRUB is unable to launch either OS. 

I am thinking that the first step is to download and burn Debian install CD (for net install because I hopefully don't really have to down load most of Debian.)  But after that, actually figuring out what to do with GRUB could be its own set of puzzles.

So I am asking for suggestions of what to do next

Thanks in advance
