Fresh install of SUSE, windows partition is mounted but no GRUB entry

I just did a fresh install of suse 10.1, and it for some reason did not recognize windows on my other hard drive. It mounts the drive when installed as /windows/C, but there is no boot option. How can I add windows to grub so I can boot it as well?

PS: I forgot to mention, this is Vista RC2, not XP

Help up help you. This isn't much information to work with.

1) how many hard drives: 1, 2, or more?

2) is Linux on the first drive, or other?

3) is vista on the first drive, or other?

4) paste a copy of Suses /etc/fstab here.

5) paste a copy of Suses /boot/grub/menu.lst here.

With some essential information, you might get faster results.
