I was working with a dual boot win98/XPpro.Today I inserted a floppy which had a virus when I was working in win98. Norton warned me about a MBR alteration. I allowed Norton to keep the altered MBR as such.Cleaned the virus from the floppy.Restartedthe PC only to find my dual boot is gone.How can I restore my WinXP/98 dual boot MBR

The MRB was altered on (0) sector of the drive
Traeat it as a nt repair
Download the setup disk from the microsoft web site,you will need six disks
Use the disk to start setup to install XP and once you get the panel to select the type of install see if XP has a Repair install and proceed to make that choice and then follow the onscreen instructions
