debian, grub2, booting the "other OS"

Recently my debian installation switched to grub2 and the boot menu no longer showed a working entry for booting my old XP partition.

The solution is simple:

sudo apt-get install os-prober
sudo update-grub

From now on grub2 will automatically detect and add to its menu all other OS partitions on your local disks.
