If this is an XP system and the MBR set by XP, then you can boot with the 
(any!) XP CD/DVD into the rescue console and use fixmbr command. However, 
you indicated earlier there is some encryption in place, I don't know if 
that is already in effect at MBR level. If it is, this method or the one 
mentioned in the article won't help.
