Thanks in advance
You can do that. Even if you only had a single HD. In any case, the easiest procedure is to *first* install Windows as usual, then install linux on a different partition.
The installer should guide you through the process without much problem, and it should detect the rest of installed OSes (particularly Windows) and add them to your boot loader menu, so you can decide which OS you want to boot when you turn on the computer.
You can as well install Windows after having installed Linux, but you will then need to reinstall your boot loader manually or using some tool like the supergrub livecd because Windows will overwrite the boot loader with its own, in the wrong assumption that Windows will be the only OS in your machine.
