then boot the linux with floppy and copy the totall 
/boot directory contents to floppy ans shutdownthe
sytem next when u go to windows prompmt copy the
totall boot contents which is there on floppy on c:\

so u have 
10 loadlin.exe and 2) the kernel vmlinuz 
go to only dos mode not win-dos mode and give the
command c:>loadlin vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5(where the
native is mounted while using fdisksay /dev/hda5)
