[ltp] Restore WinXP MBR?

So, while trying to get my partitions set up properly I installed grub 
into the mbr for the whole disk of my T40. Although this is not a 
problem for linux, I can't boot Windows anymore (this is required 
sometimes for me). 

I went ahead and got the recovery CDs from IBM (for which I was charged 
$40 since I've had the machine over 30 days...I hate computer 
companies). They restored everything but the MBR. 

I don't have a floppy drive; any suggestions? Would I be able to use any 
usb floppy drive to boot my ThinkPad (to use a windows boot floppy to 
fix the mbr)?
