hide (hd0,2)
rootnoverify (hd0,0)

You have to make changes to the grub.conf file.

You can find it in /etc/grub.conf    or  /boot/grub/grub.conf

By default it will have the loader options for linux. You have to add the entry for windows.

title (Your Options eg-Windows or win98 etc)
unhide (hd0,0)
hide (hd0,1)
hide (hd0,2)
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
makeactive

The lines are same as the user paullamhkg has specified. One more thing u have to do is to choose which os u want to load by default.

Either windows or Linux. If u wnt linux leave the entry default=0 as it is. If u want windows then change this option default=1

U will find this line in the grub.conf file.
