Recovering lost boot loader.

While experimenting with GRUB, I accidentally destroyed the windows boot loader by typing:
grub-install /dev/hda1
instead of:
grub-install /dev/hda
Now I cannot boot windows. Although it is not such a big problem for me but my brothers use windows most of the time. How can get it back?

Looking for codecs.

Assalam-o-Alaikum,
I have MPlayer and xine installed on Fedora Core 5 and none of the players plays sound while playing a 3GP file. Where can I find the codecs for 3GP files?

I also tried this:
grub> boot /dev/sda1
the boot loader replied that kernel must be loaded before booting.
I do not know which command to use for this purpose. I tried a few random commands but did not succeed. Can anyone help me about which command to use?

I have now installed puppy Linux in flash drive. Presently my floppy drive is not working properly and I cannot set my BIOS to boot from flash drive. I want to know if there is a way to do this with the help of GRUB installed in the MBR of my hard disk.
