Need a little help with dual-booting MEPIS 6 on a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop

I've finally come back to Linux, after a year with the dark side and there are a few things I need reminding how to do...

When I installed MEPIS on my laptop, GRUB didn't pickup the fact that I have a Windows installation on sda1.
Now, I know how to edit /etc/boot/menu.lst...

title Windows at sda1
chainloader +1

But what goes in the middle there to boot from sda1?
