my mac pro (first gen) previously had a whole disc dedicated to windows/bootcamp. Ive now added a new disk to the machine. On this new disk I have installed osx 10.6.

Now when I boot the machine, it loads straight into osx without offering me the windows option, help?

Is the Boot Camp disk readable from OS X? That's the first step. After making sure that your Mac can actually read the disk,

  • Hold down Option while booting to show a boot menu, or
  • Install rEFIt
