Thanks for the advice. I must have missed the drop down box. That's where it got confusing for me.
I'll try it again.

I would actually do it just the way you were going to. That's how I do it every time. Since they are SATA drives, it makes it a bit easier. There are no primary and secondary drives in regard to SATA.
After you install Linux on the second drive, you can go into GRUB and add the Windows drive and then you will also have to change the device.map file to tell it where the windows drive is. There is a trick to it though when you edit the menu.lst file for GRUB. Windows has to be first or it complains about it. So what you can do it trick Windows into thinking that it is the primary drive when it really isn't. Windows is funny that way. It wants to complain but it's easily fooled
I can post a step by step of how I do it and it has never failed me yet and I've been doing it that way for about 8 years
