Same here - windows partitions have, in my experience, always (well as
least since solid GRUB support was added - but we're not talking LILO
here) been detected and added by grub on RH-derived systems.  [Not so
for detecting/adding other Linux installations, unfortunately, but
that's not too hard to do manually if you're like me and have 4 or 5
different OSs installed on "play" machines - disk space is cheap these
