Some GRUB menus aren't exactly MBR friendly either
Seriously though, if MS installations override other MS installs on the same machine, what chance do you think Linux has?
You could also use the LiveCD, boot into Linux and restore the GRUB that way. Although you'll have to add Windows to GRUB boot menu, otherwise you'll lose access to Windows...
