I just installed it minutes ago actually. Here is the article I mainly used:
http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2604&highlight=grub

So to get the menu you need to have a file called menu.lst (not menu.1st - as in with a "one"st. It should be a "l" as in llama). You put the menu.lst in /boot/grub/ . Then run grub. I have linux on a seperate hard disk than windows. Here is my menu.lst. Hope it helps.

#menu.lst
