Simply comment-out the entry from the GRUB config. file. This is in /boot/grub and is named grub.conf OR menu.lst.

To boot Windows, just remove the comment characters ("#" if I remember correctly)

I don't want to sound like an ass, but what is the point of deleting the Windows option at boot if you want to dual boot? It seems to laborious to change it once not to see it and then to change it again when you want to boot into Windows.
