Installation - Vista & Kanotix dual-boot

I am very new here and I am new in Linux.
Until today I had a GRUB dual-boot system with Win XP Pro and Kanotix RC7. Today I removed XP and installed a fresh copy of Vista HomeBasic which overwrote GRUB. I made a boot from Live CD and performed Acritox' repair installation function. It has not recognized another OS, and the result was that now GRUB displays only Linux option at startup, Vista boot option is missing.
Can anyone tell me a method for having both options at startup?

GRUB and Acritox versions are those included in RC7 release.

Just install GRUB2:

echo deb http://kanotix.com/files/fix/grub2 ./ > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grub2.list
apt-get update && apt-get install grub-pc os-prober
grub-install /dev/sda, or (#4) sed -i 's/\(GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=\).*/\1"quiet vga=791 splash"/' /etc/default/grub
rm -f /boot/grub/menu.list
