GRUB problems

I have a machine at home which has SuSE and Windows on separate drives. A
while back windows died and had to be reinstalled, which of course blew away
the MBR. This weekend I booted linux from the dvd and proceeded to perform
an update (9.2 to 10). During the upgrade, the GRUB install failed
(couldn't find stage 1). I tried every combo offered in the way of where to
install GRUB, but it failed every time. I usually install it in the MBR of
/dev/hda1 (windows drive), which may or may not be the best place to put it.
Even so, I tried installing it in the boot sector of the root partition, but
still no joy. Unfortunately, windows needs to be the default OS to boot on
this machine, and before having to reinstall windows I had no problem using
GRUB. Any assistance w/ resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated!
