chown user bootsect.lnx
To complete the transplant, place the file you created with dd or Bootpart on the Windows drive as C:\bootsect.lnx.

Now it’s time to tell Windows about Linux. Again, there are two ways to go about this.
If you are doing everything manually,
fire up a text editor in Windows and edit the file c:\boot.ini.
Add the line c:\bootsect.lnx=”Linux” to the end of the file.

cat /etc/grub.conf
To see where grub is located on your hard-disk.
