boot loader



not sure of the topicality of this here but...

i've got a computer with ntldr messing up. since i don't have a windows xp disk, i have no way of fixing this (besides torrent). so, i was hoping to find some sort of quick install that just shoved grup on the system and made a minimal partition for /boot (and whatever else is required for grub).

as it is, i can't find anything that does this. so i'm curious of everything that grub depends on? just /boot or do i need some config files in /etc and do i need any binaries for it? i'm not interested in maintaining grub from the system (it would just be maintained from a boot cd if at all). i just need it to boot and work. i'm going to use gparted to make a ~10 meg partition (i think that's all i should need).

... unless anyone knows of a system that does all of this for me, then i'll just let it ride and not worry about anything?
