Sure. I decided against it in the end, I'd need to do some serious partition moving and put another hard drive in, but instructions for anyone else who wants to:

1) Create a primary partition (has to be the first partition on the first drive, which has to be IDE) and install the bootup files onto it

2) Download EasyBCD (free) from here

3) Follow the instructions here
