Need help with dualbooting Vista HP and Ubuntu 9.04


I have insatlled Vista HP x32 and Ubuntu 9.04 x64 on the same HD on different partition.
When I installed Ubuntu I choose to install GRUB on it's own partition.
I tried adding Ubuntu with EasyBCD. I just selected Linux and selected on which partition Ubuntu was installed. I didn't select GRUB isn't installed to the bootsector.
Now if I boot I don't see any extra option asking me if I want to boot into Ubuntu.
My BIOS loads, and after that Vista does. Absolutely no extra screen.

Here is some more info on what I did:
There are a total of 2 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader Timeout: 15 seconds.
Default OS: Microsoft Windows Vista

Entry #1

Name: Microsoft Windows Vista
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: Active Boot Partition
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows

Entry #2

Name: NeoSmart Linux
BCD ID: {53a07fc4-31ad-11de-9795-001d9220ed48}
Drive: U:\
Bootloader Path: \NST\nst_grub.mbr
I find it strange that msconfig isn't altered either after I added Linux.

Is anyone able to help me with this tricky dualboot?




Ok, I tried EasyBCD 2.0 beta and it succeeded.
So I guess I don't need any more help with dualbooting.
