It will do it automatically when you install your Oses, there are plenty of tutorials online for this.

yeah, and if you did it the other way (ubuntu, then windows) you just have to install a bootloader. (should be on the ubuntu cd) or then download grub (http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/gru...wnload.en.html) separately.

yes it is quite easy to add an entry for windows in Linux's GRUB bootloader. the location of grub is in /boot/grub and i think you click on the menu file or something like that to edit the bootloader.
