I'm certainly no expert, just a mere user of a dual-boot config, but if
you're not already aware of it, one of the things that's helped me and
others with Grub problems is the Super Grub program:


Download the Super Grub CD image (I found the floppy image to be useless),
burn it as a ISO, and boot into it.  Super Grub will help you configure your
MBR, etc.

Cheers & hope this helps,
