Sometimes GRUB doesn't boot Windows OSes installed in Partition other than First Primary Partition. Its BIOS/GRUB compatibility problem. Try SuperGRUB CD as suggested by budman7.
In case, it doesn't work, boot up from any LiveCD and execute fdisk -l command in Terminal/Konsole and post output here. You have to configure Windows Boot Loader to setup Dual Boot.
