It happens to me regularly. I use the first installation CD and i go into linux rescue. Then i ask to have the root partition mounted, (usually under /mnt/sysimage r something like that) and then i chroot that mount point (the step is explained in a pop-up window). I reinstall grub with grub-install /dev/sda for the mbr on the first sata disk.
Then the 3-finger salute!

Sata may be mounted as /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, /dev/sdb and so on. If you have a how-to try mounting them per the howto but using the above. Of course if you used LVM you may need to read here: http://www.linuxdevcenter.com/pub/a/linux/2006/04/27/managing-disk-space-with-lvm.html
