Something I should have backed up from the previous windows install: how the silly PostgreSQL services were installed. It's been so long since I've installed it that I'm going to have to track down the secret incantation all over again.
Luckily it turns out that there's a very simple GRUB incantation for booting Win2K off a second drive (hdb1) rather than the first:
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
Which swaps the first and second drives at the BIOS level so Windows thinks its booting off the first drive. Also switched root to rootnoverify, not sure if that had any effect, but it was what was recommended, and it makes sense that you don't want to force grub into loading the NTFS drive.
Tomorrow I'll figure out the PostgreSQL thing, it's already been a very long day (~14 hours of straight work (I ate as I was waiting for installations to finish)) and I'm not thinking particularly sharply at the moment.
