Post-Fedora WinXP install and SPSS

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello there. I installed Fedora 11, then 12, and had nothing but minute problems that were easy to solve for about two months. I'm happy as hell with the distro. Anyways, because of my job I now have to install the statistical package known as SPSS, recently bought by IBM, and the thing is that it certainly doesn't run under Linux, nor under wine. Besides I can't risk the usual buggy performance that most software has under virtualization layers, since this is for work. Thing is I don't know how to go about installing WinXP on top of Fedora. I've done the opposite on a couple other cans, but Win typically overwrites the MBR of the drive it's installed in, right? Oh, BTW, I know of PSPP, I've installed it, and while it's a neat effort, it's parsecs away from any commercially-available statistical package, which is a shame. Anyways, how does one go about installing windows and then being able to boot into Fedora easily? does grub work on it the same as in other distros? do I reinstall grub or something? and if so, how do I do that? (HowTos)
