When you update your kernels, the part that runs is update-grub, which
has no knowledge of Windows whatsoever. Instead, this is a script that
manages the part of your /boot/grub/menu.lst file between the "### BEGIN
AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST" and "### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST"
markers. If you add a Windows boot entry between these markers, you're
absolutely right that it will disappear on a kernel upgrade, and that
this has nothing to do with Windows partitions - that's bug #21412 in
grub, which has been fixed for Ubuntu 8.04.
Your symptom does not match what has been originally reported in this
bug, however, so I have not presumed that this is a duplicate of bug
#21412 - it appears to be a real problem with grub loading Windows at
boot time, unrelated to problems with menu.lst being overwritten.
