What I did was to install Windows first, and then when I installed
Debian, it noticed the Windows installation and automatically included
an entry in LILO's boot-time menu for it.

The popular options for boot-loader are LILO or GRUB, they both
support the dual-booting scenario you want, and there are howtos out
there if you need details about the configuration.
