Well. Nope. I'm sorry. I assumed you wanted to dual boot with some
other operating system. One starting with W :-)

First. The booteable/active flag is only meaningful for Windows. It
needs that flag in order to know which one is the partition holding
its boot loader (io.sys+msdos.sys, ntdetect.com, etc.) Doesn't make
any difference under Grub/Linux. The BIOS is stupid and it just looks
for an MBR on the first hd (you define which one is the first using
your BIOS boot priority menu)
