    get windows on the grub boot menu


    hi i just installed chakralinux(a distro based off arch) and i am not sure how to add my windows(vista) partition to the grub list.

    here is my partition table:
    Code:
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1       58191   467413824    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda2           58192       58214      184747+  83  Linux
    /dev/sda3           58215       59211     8000370   82  Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda4           59212       60801    12771675   83  Linux
    could someone tell me what to add to /boot/grub/menu.lst to get my windows partition listed and booting.

    Code:
    title Windows Vista
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1
    Save file and reboot machine.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
