That's the idea, yes. I would do the re-installation of the MBR in
Windows with the Linux drive removed for safety, then put it back and
explicitly install GRUB on the Linux drive's MBR.

I was driving a mini-bus for school girls before Christmas and they were
doing a spot of carol singing as we went along. I pointed out that the
van had a CD drive and suggested they could bring a CD along to sing to.
I might as well have suggested that they brought a gramophone and some
78s given the reaction I got.
