I am joining this thread a bit late so sorry if this has already been mentioned.

Much advice appears to have been given, some contradictory. This is
often because some of the choices are due to personal preferences. So
instead of adding my opinion on the exact wiring I shall offer some
slightly different advice:

Have you considered contacting some local Linux people to see if they
are willing to give you a hand in setting up your Dual Boot? Your
local LUG (Linux User Group) is a very good place to start

Some of them have what is called a "Bring A Box" meeting, where you
can bring along your PC. Maybe someone will be able to guide you
through it in person? (wise to ask in advance on the mailing list to
see if there will be someone willing to help).

WARNING: Make a full backup of everything you want from your current
hard drive. All though it's uncommon things can go wrong, and you can
guarantee if something is going to go wrong it will happen the one
time you don't have a backup!

Good luck whatever you do in the end.

Let us know how it goes!
