So Mepis replaced your GRUB bootloader, and now it's only showing Mepis
as an option?

Or are you even given a bootloader screen when you boot up?
If not, try holding SHIFT during the boot process.  (I forget if this is how
GRUB works, but in LILO, if you had it NOT show a menu -- and therefore
auto-boot some specific OS every time you booted -- you could hold SHIFT to
force the menu to appear.)

Good luck!
