Hi Willem

As root open the file /boot/grub/menu.lst in an editor and add these lines
at the bottom:

title         Windows
root          (hd0,0)
chainloader   +1

Save the file. This should fix it as long as long as the Windows C: drive
is Grub's (hd0,0). Before rebooting you can check this with cfdisk.

cfdisk /dev/hda

/dev/hda is (h0,0) in Grub - the Grand Universal Boot Loader - and usually
C: drive in Windows. You should get an output like this:

 cfdisk (util-linux-ng 2.13.1-rc1)

                               Disk Drive: /dev/hda
                         Size: 81964302336 bytes, 81.9 GB
              Heads: 16   Sectors per Track: 63   Cylinders: 158816
