If you bios supports loading off the 3rd hard drive... no what's needed
is to have grub installed on the boot sector of the first hard drive.
That grub will point to the 3rd hard drive for config and a list of
options which will then boot off any of the disks.

But it's not easy to set up, you need to know what your doing with that
kind of setup.

Let us know if you'd like some help with it.
