How to manual install Grub on /d ev/SDD

Ok, here is my setup,

I have the Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard. I have 2 sata controllers. 1 Nforce and 1 Silicon Images. On the Nforce controller I have 3 drives. 1 Seagate 80 gig (boot drive) that is a stand alone sata drive. Then I have 2 Maxtor 200 gigs sitting on Sata port 2,3 that make up the Nvidia Raid set which I use for Windows. Now on the other controller(Silicon Images) i have 2 Maxtor 80 sata's in RAID 0 configuration. Now I use the Seagate as a boot drive. What i'm having trouble with is, In Windows it see's the Seagate 80 gig as F:\ but it's like the boot drive for it. THat's where the MBR is loaded. Now I use the linux rescue disk and I can reinstall Grub on that drive and boot into linux. How to do properly configure this for dual boot. PLEASE HELP

If You boot to the linux, what is the content of /boot/grub/grub.conf (or /boot/grub/menu.lst). You may need to issue 'mount /boot' first.
Maybe it's already configured, And You just have to issue: grub-install /dev/sdd #(surely /dev/sdd ?)

First make sure that grub is configured properly to boot up your OSes....
As in make options for booting linux and windows in grub.con... make sure to use the right devices...
run grub

> root (hd0,0)    (or whatever your seagate drive is)
> setup (hd0,0)   (same here )

Yeah... make sure you create a backup of the current grub on floppy so you don't break both OSes...
the above configuratio may be not enought or wrong!
usually, if You install grub by hand You issuing
# grub
> device (hd0) /dev/sda # or /dev/sdd
> root (hd0,0) # where 0 stands for /dev/sda1, 5 for /dev/sda6 and says where /boot is mounted
> setup (hd0) # install grub in MBR, setup (hd0,0) - install on /boot partition

but after that You have to make sure that grub is configured to boot both OSes...
