Windows will do angry things to the boot sector of the drive if it is
installed last during dual boot setup, so you'll have to use the
recovery disk if you do this. Whether windows will be happy at the end
of the disk is somewhat hardware dependent. I honestly don't know if
that would work.  You might instead (if you have the ram) use vmware
and load windows in linux to sidestep the problem entirely.
