Reverting back after install


I have a 2 hard drive setup, 160 Gb master 40Gb slave. Win XP Pro is installed on the 160Gb drive and I have Fedora Core 2 on the 40Gb. I installed FC2 last and I believe when I installed it, I setup the boot loader on the 40Gb drive. So I'm in a bit of a dilemma now. I need to take the 40Gb drive out for another machine. Is there a way I can revert the box back so that it will boot to Windows properly without the 40Gb drive w/ Grub on it? I'd like to not reinstall WinXP again if I don't have to.

Boot with the XP install CD and select recovery mode. Then run the fixmbr utility.
