Anyone done this, or know how? All the online guides seem to be XP/Vista 32 dual boot guides, which is different because they're both 32 bit.

PS- I have two licences for Vista- my primary HD has an OEM 32 bit version, and I have another retail 64 bit copy to install
Unplug your main drive when installing Vista onto the second drive then you'll need to use a boot manager to get the menus set right.
