    Default Grub?

    Hi guys, i've made a partition hda5 on my Hd and installed BackTrack using the installer.

    When I restart my PC it just boots windows. How can I install GRUb so I can choose between Windows/Linux.

    I heard you need to make a Grub install floppy but I don't have a floppy disk drive.

    Can anybody help?

    Cheers
    Matt
