It is very simple. Install the English version just like the Chinese version. You wiil be prompted to select a partition\drive to install your new instance of windows to. Simple select the second hard drive.

Just in case you need to have a doc here it is:

Multibooting with Windows XP: Introduction

You might want to print for reference.
