Here's the way I did it on one machine. I took out the Windows drive and put in the one for Linux, and installed my fav' Linux, then I opened the boot.ini file and mapped the two drives to each other. Then I put the Windows drive in the slave position, the Linux drive boots and gives me the opportunity to choose the Windows drive or or continue booting Linux. That way I install Linux on a Windows machine without disturbing the Windows drive al all, except for moving it to the slave position.
PS: I'm pretty sure it was menu.lst that I edited, but things have changed somewhat since then.
