If Windows is installed after Linux

* Boot with the first Installation CD and type 'linux rescue' in the boot prompt. The installer anaconda will mount RedHat installation under /mnt/sysimage.

* Type 'chroot /mnt/sysimage' in the rescue shell that you get.
* Open '/boot/grub/ t' in your favourite editor and add the following lines to the end it it.

title Microsoft Windows
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Note: Its assumed we installed Windows to hda1. If you have doubt do 'fdisk -l /dev/hda' to find the your C:
hda1 -> (hd0,0)
hda2 -> (hd0,1)
and so on.

* Then type 'grub-install /dev/hda'. It will report that installation of GRUB completed.
* Reboot using 'reboot' command and you will be getting GRUB with two entries one for Linux and other for Windows.
