Search no further as I have actually set this up for
myself and it works. There is a little digging in my
memory in order to give you the details, so I'll have
a think on it and send the details tomorrow (friday).
Windows will overwrite the mbr but using a live cd and
grub-install linux boot can be recovered.
I too prefer 2k to xp it seems more solid, but I
believe that it's not so good for games but I don't
know for certain.
More info to follow
