You just about got it right :)

Have you got any more concrete questions?

As for the boot-manager installation: whether it's
Grub or Lilo, MBR is a good choice ...


Cheers,

just install windows first on hda, then install linux second on hdc and then when linux is up and running you will add an entry to your lilo.conf file or grub.conf file depending on which bootloader you use, and then when you boot your computer up you will have an option to pick either or ..

well in any case, i can tell your going to need assitance on the editing of your *.conf file, that is if you don't find an answer on your own searching around, but i mean once you get into linux and have it up and running, then all you have to do is pop back here and ask the question ...
but for now, you have the general idea ..
