Thanks, that's the kind of thing I was after, so can I just go in to Windows (sorry, Windows question!), and type fdisk /mbr to make it bootable directly and then reconfigure GRUB to only be on the second disk? That will then need to chain load the first disk for Windows.

And this is the first time in years I've had to use the DVD drive BTW, but I do find it scary when people say they've never used a CD or DVD...
