I've been burnt by this before, so I'd like to restate it:

As of Windows XP, Windows _needs to be on the first drive_. :) I concur
with the method you list above (6c1 through 6c4); that's how I always
did it.

I guess we found a use for GRUB, though, in the ability to remap
drives. :) Maybe I'll have to try it out when I build Gentoo...
