How to boot to Linux Ubuntu after installing Windows 7/Seven

Hi. I had Ubuntu installed in one partition, with XP on another. GRUB bootloader chose between the two.
Then I had Windows 7 replacing Windows XP.

But Windows 7 overrided the GRUB boot menu, and so goes straight to Windows 7.

How do I restore the boot menu to load?

I found this article, but it doesn't help me much...  
http://blog.lokonopa.com/grub-up-windows-7/

I can't find Bootloader Configuration Options, as the article says to go into, and thus I can't create a new boot loader. I am using the Ubuntu 9.04 distribution CD.

Also,  how do I add Windows 7 to the GRUB menu afterwards?

Thank you.

Perfect... I was able to boot to Win 7 thru the old menu (which showed Win XP and Ubuntu).
