Hey so i cocked up big time and being a newb to ubuntu i need help. Im writing this having booted from the live cd!

Right so i wanted to install ubuntu to my external hardrive following a tutorial online. I partitiond my hardrive correctly but when it came to the final step i forgot to put grub on the hardrive and so it is on my computer now and i cannot boot into vista or ubuntu unless im using the cd to boot.

Please can you help
