you need to edit your /et/grub.conf file to include the lines
title windows
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

thats asmuing that your windows partition is on the first partion of your master harddrive. if its not, the numbers after hd will need to be changed. The first number is the hard-drive (0 master 1 slave) and than the second is the partition starting from 0.
