I should have done a bit more research before asking what must seem to be a silly question.
not silly .Most people have NEVER installed one OS let alone two or more on one computer .It can be a bit daunting .
to counter the "overwhelmingness " of it . put some things down on paper
you will find a BUNCH of tutorials for windows xp and linux
with windows 7 they are 100% usless -- do not bother even to read "how to's for XP
you can use bcd to boot linux and windows7
or you can use grub to boot both
-- normal every day--
windows 7 FIRST and ONLY -- ONLY -- install on the first drive
install fedora on the second drive and but grub on the second drive
change the boot order in the bios
thee are other ways and combinations of them
find one that works for you .
