Warning: I've never actually done this, so use caution!
On the install CD there is a repair facility. One of the repair tools
is called fixmbr (or maybe fixboot, I'm not sure which). I would remove
or unplug the XP drive and then try the fixboot utility -- which will
only see the newer drive and install the bootblock for you (I think ;o)
I don't know how well Vista deals with removing non-removable drives.
It may get confused when the partitions on that disk disappear. Dunno.
