No other way? Are you sure? read the following.

iReboot is NeoSmart Technologies' simple yet effective reboot helper tool. iReboot sits in your taskbar at startup (only taking up 400KB of memory!) and lets you choose which operating system you want to reboot into. Instead of pressing restart, waiting for Windows to shut down, waiting for your BIOS to post, then selecting the operating system you want to boot into (within the bootloader time-limit!); you just select that entry from iReboot and let it do the rest! If you liked EasyBCD, you'll just love iReboot! http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=11

Those are generally well written. With ubuntu on here along with XP, Vista, and two 7 betas 32bit, 64bit I've been comtemplating using that rather then the constant full restart into this or that version.

I've been using their EasyBCD tool for some time now for setting up multiboots and found that well written as well. I won't advise looking at something I think is crap for sure.
