I believe this is primarily a bootloader question here. My current setup has Win XP Pro and Ubuntu dualbooting from the same HDD using GRUB.

I want to add a new Samsung 830 SSD and install Windows 7 on it. I also want to be able to choose from my (3) OS's at startup. Will GRUB or the Windows 7 bootloader automatically recognize this setup and give me the proper options at boot time? Is it even possible to multiboot across several physical disks? This is a bit over my head though I feel like it is possible - I just don't want to render my system unbootable.
