I use grub4dos as a boot manager - there is a sample menu.lst entry for puppy here:

Although you probably don't need the hide and unhide sections. Should be able to adapt it to grub too, if that is your current boot manager.

Puppy Linux.org
There's a how to guide at this site. Be careful, if you install Grub to your MBR, it'll be trashed if you want to reinstall Windows.
You'll have to repair it via Recovery Console, don't ask me how I know this.
