By following the instructions here:

You create a Linux boot sector and move that to the Windows partition.
Editing BOOT.INI and using the WinXP bootloader, you select the Linux
boot sector and that loads the Grub menu and you are off to the races.

If you set up grub.conf properly, you can even return to the original
Windows boot menu.

The key is to remember that if you repartition your system at some later
date, you need to recreate the linux boot sector and copy the updated
file to the Windows partition.  Forgetting to do this step is the most
common reason that folks get the infamous "GRUB" message and lock up on
booting Linux after having previously had a working dual boot system.
