Let me add some flames to the fire: Gentoo, imho, is the best distribution for its customizability. I wouldnt recommend it if you're looking for something easy to install, though.
Anyways, back to the point.
I think the following site may be of service. I haven't tried it, but it should allow mediadirect to work with linux. It is a guide to setting up the windows bootloader (NTLDR) to boot GRUB or LILO which would then boot Linux.
Hope this helps!
