Is it possible to manually add linux to windows 7 mbr?

I recently installed ubuntu as a duel boot between my win 7 installation, and I then reset the MBR, as I prefer the windows mbr.

Now, I cant boot into linux, so my question is:

Is it possible to add ubuntu to the windows mbr manually, and if so, how?

Thanks in advance, Liam
