I have dual boot Ubuntu 9.10 & Windows XP. Would like to do a full install of Windows 7 over the XP partition.

You can restore GRUB using a Live CD, but if you want a simple way, Ultimate Boot CD includes Super Grub Disk that provides the option of doing it automatically for you. There's a walkthrough here.

"Just setup a dual boot from existing Vista to Win7/Ubuntu 9.10 with help of this article: http://lifehacker.com/5403100/dual+boot-windows-7-and-ubuntu-in-perfect-harmony
This worked out very well. Pay special attention to assigning the mount point and the swap file definition."
