Is it possible to have the Windows bootloader point to Windows 7 and a Linux partition instead of using GRUB to point to Windows 7 and Linux?

Any links to tutorials, guides, or how-tos would be appreciated.

Yes, the easiest way is to use EasyBCD to manage the Windows boot manager.

Here is a quick how-to, Windows 7 is basically the same as Vista.

CT didn't specify Ubuntu, and even if he did, according to the EasyBCD pages the "advanced" bit doesn't work with the current version of Ubuntu. Your second point is about Windows XP, CT specified Windows 7 in the question. – Neal Sep 13 '10 at 19:23
