absolutely, I personally prefer that over partitioning my OSX Main Drive
Drive Bay 1: OS X
Drive Bay 2: Windows
just go into bootcamp select the harddrive you placed in your second bay and it will use that as the target disk to install windows when you insert the windows disc and restart to install.MacPro2.66 : : 2GB : : 500GB : : ATI X1900XT // MacBookPro 2.2 : : 2GB : : 120GB, Mac OS X (10.4.9), XP Pro Sp2 : : 500GB / / iPod 30GB 5th Gen.

Then install Windows on that drive or partition, again making sure to format as NTFS. Once Windows is installed, simply insert the Leopard disk and install the Boot Camp drivers. To restart onto the Windows partition simply hold down the "option" key at restart or start-up.
One little caveat when partitioning the drive, make sure that the Windows partition is the LAST partition on the drive.Mac Pro/2.88hz/6gigs/1.2TBs, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
