    The tool you're looking for is called rEFIt - get it here:

    Code:
    http://refit.sourceforge.net/
    rEFIt is a boot menu and maintenance toolkit for EFI-based machines like the Intel Macs. You can use it to boot multiple operating systems easily, including triple-boot setups with Boot Camp. It also provides an easy way to enter and explore the EFI pre-boot environment.
