Not really, no!

Leave disk 2 attached.

Boot off a LiveCD to the desktop.

Repartition as I described using GParted.

THEN run the install program and pick "do something else", i.e. the
custom partitioning option, and choose the 3 partitions you just
created. Then just continue as normal.

No cable-fiddling needed.
