Question Getting 2 MBR Programs to co-exist

Hi. I'm a newbie of about 3 weeks. I used to use a program called Drivecrypt Plus Pack to completely encrypt my Windows HD (Including the OS). It loaded from the MBR. I asked DCPP support if it would co-exist with Linux, and they said no. So, I uninstalled DCPP and installed Red Hat 9, which loads with GRUB. I understand I can move GRUB to the first sector on a partition, which I will do when I rebuild this machine. /To make a long story short, I want Partition Magic to be loaded to the MBR and load GRUB, and I want DCPP to be loaded there as well to decrypt my Windows partition when I boot into it. Is there such a thing as a program that will manage MBR programs? This may be more of a general computer question, but I figured you guys would know best. Thanks
