[CentOS] How does Linux Repair actually work

Thanks to the help of folks on this forum, I now have my Centos 4 
box up and working, however I do have a question on how the 
repair actually worked.

After starting the Linux Repair, the process "found my installed 
Linux".  Some of you will remember that I had accidentally erased 
the /boot and /boot/grub directories, but I had most of the files 
saved (not the symbolic links) and put them back into the 
directories *and* I did run a rpm reinstall.

When Linux Repair "found the installed Linux", did it create a 
new /boot and /boot/grub *or* did it just use what I had put there?

[I am now downloading Centos 5.5 which I'll install on a new 
drive and then face the challenges of moving my backup data to 
the new OS]
