 Dual-boot Linux on a second drive

"The computer in question was a standard white-box PC with Windows XP installed on its one hard drive. One option was to shrink the exiting Windows partition with NTFSresize and install Linux in the resulting free space. However, this was too intrusive. I did not have a backup of the data on the Windows machine, and didn't want to take the time to make one, so I was loath to do anything that could wipe it out."
