Had that case last Monday. Installing MGA2 I forgot to change the
standard settings of the bootloader and overwrote the bootloader of
another system which was in the MBR.

Started the dvd with rescue mode
went to console
created /mnt/point
mounted the root directory of the other system to /mnt/point
did 'chroot /mnt/point'
re-installed the bootloader with the grub command

This is a good example where the rescue mode comes in very handy.
