If you do decide to give it a shot, repairing the mbr if you don't like it is very easy.
In XP, boot from cd, select repair option and type "fixmbr" and "fixboot".
I'm not sure the "fixboot" is even needed.
In vista, boot from dvd and select "repair", I think that's what the option says.
Either way..good luck what ever your decision.
I appreciate the advice. I've been through borked-MBR-hell once, so I'm a little gunshy there.
I think I snuck an edit in that post while you were replying:
EDIT: Or do you mean I could just leave the Windows HDD as the default and only when I want to boot into Linux would I have to enter the BIOS? As I said, I've no experience w/dual booting, so sorry for the perhaps stupid question.
