I had no problem having GRUB boot vista in F9. Haven't tried since then, but basically I partitioned my drive with space for vista (so I didn't have to resize which takes forever) then installed Vista. After vista was up and running, I installed F9 and it put a grub entry in for windows that worked. There may have been a few issues but as I recall it worked well. You could also probably use the Vista boot loader and edit it to load grub if you just stick it on a partition instead of the MBR (/dev/sda1 or whichever is your boot partition instead of /dev/sda).
