    Well I dont have answer for your question nikhiltheprince. But I havent used linspire or lindows yet. But if it is same as the other linux distributions (lilo & grub works) then I assume that you use lilo then goto /etc/lilo then try to find out the place where the boot image is installed it should be something like

    /disks/mylinuxdistribution/boot/vmlinuz

    then add these line
    image=/disks/mylinuxdistribution/boot/vmlinuz
    label=mylinux (nospaces)
    root=/dev/hdc9( the root of that distribution)

    then take terminal and run lilo.
    You should success. Then reboot you must see the new one.
