adding a new hard dirve

I have a dual boot machine running XP and RH WS 3. They are both on their own physical disk. I'd like to add a 3rd hard drive to be used for the Windows OS. If I throw in the drive, will it cause changes or probelms on boot up? I use GRUB to boot, with no real probelms so far. My guess is that Windows will detect the drive once I choose and boot into XP, but I'm not 100% sure how the system will react.
