  When I installed FC2 I did exactly what you're describing. I
left my FC1 install alone, and installed FC2 on a partition at 
the end of the second disk. I told the installer to leave my 
MBR alone, and updated GRUB manually. 

Getting GRUB to work was rough, but I worked it out. The docs
for GRUB are great, but not easy to quickly glance through for
and answer. 

It really depends on what you're installing on the second disk, 
but I'm sure someone here can help you get GRUB straightened out
so the second OS will boot.
