I still have to manually select 'Windows' each time I turn on my computer this way though. Kind of annoying. Did the Linux install put something in my BIOS that makes it boot to the GRUB? I can't find any way to bypass this. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, I am using Windows ME if that helps diagnosis any.

Linux changed your boot block on your HD so that Grub got loaded instead of the windows loader.

Run your windows setup disk, and tell it to repair the installation. It will rewrite the boot block so that the Windows loader starts.
