Grub can be configured to boot an OS from a separate hard drive.  I did 
this when upgrading my hard drive, I put the old drive in on another 
SATA port and the new drive on the first SATA port.  I then installed 
Ubuntu and configured Grub to boot Ubuntu from the old drive.  Can't 
remember exactly what I put in the menu.lst at the moment as my machine 
isn't working (dead motherboard) but it is possible.
