prior to Paldo I used Debian which automatically recognized other bootable OS's and added them into menu.lst

for now I use a "GAG" cd to boot Vista but

I would like to have the choice via grub.

We're planning to automatically add other installed operating systems to the GRUB menu in the future.

For now you can add the following lines to /boot/grub/menu.lst

title Windows Vista
root (hdX,Y)
chainloader +1

Where X and Y are the disk and partition number, respectively; both are 0-based. For example (hd0,0) is the first partition on the first harddisk (harddisk order as configured in the BIOS).

That took care of it thanks.

I got so used to it just being there I forgot how to modify it manually.

The new installer should now detect windows and add it to the grub menu. If you want you can try it out ...
