Windows 7 on MBR

I install Windows RC on one drive, then swapped the boot order to an
unused drive and installed Ubuntu on that drive.
This has given me dual-boot out of the box.
Shame to here about other peoples experiences

	I have a really idiotic way of fixing dual boots.. 
	Go into the BIOS and disable the windows drive, when I want to
run linux, 
	and enable windows and disable  the linux drive when wanting to
run windows. 
	Of course you have to have two drives configured, but the
windows drive doesn't 
	see the linux.. However, linux if you install it on another
drive will see the windows drive 
	anyway and setup grub to allow you to boot from windows. But if
all else fails, this 
	trick always works for me. The machine I use is a Dell Dimension
9150.. I've had nothing 
	but good experiences with it. 
	BTW Dell Financial Services sells my Dell 9150 for 280 dollars
now. It's well worth 
	it if you are looking for inexpensive linux box (it's screwless
with qualtiy parts). 
	I've got a video of me replacing a graphics card in it here:   (goto to 4:16)
	Here is the URL for Dell financial services (set it up to show
you the Dimension 9150's):
