GNU GRUB or GR-and U-nified B-ootloader I believe is what you are asking there. It's simply called Grub for short.

Okay, thanks for all of your help so far. Right now I am just booting windows with a bootloader on a CD. Where can I get the Windows live boot CD or whatever it is called? Also, If I do the fixboot through the recovery console, will I still be able to boot Linux if I use the bootloader on a cd or something?
