Before you follow Jane's advice, you need to decide if you plan to
continue multi-booting between Windows and non-Windows OS's.
If you plan to keep any non-Windows OS on your machine you should
*keep* GRUB because it will let you do that easily, whereas it's
more complicated to use the Vista MBR.
I use GRUB to multi-boot between Vista, XP, OpenBSD, linux, etc with
no problems at all.
