Shouldn't be too hard.

The simplest thing to do would be to add a second hard drive (primary
master) and install windows on that.

Then use, for example, this:

   http://gonffen.f2o.org/archives/grub/x132.html

to re-install on your MBR.  Once you do, you can boot into Linux.

Once in linux, edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to tell grub about your Windows
Operating system.

In my experience, people who say that Windows *must* be on the primary
master are just plain wrong.  Grub can work miracles.  However, I'm fairly
that the Windows *installer* requires that you install onto the primary
master.  This info could be useful if you want to keep your linux hard drive
as /dev/hda so you don't have to monkey with /etc/fstab.

ps- If you don't mind me asking, is there a particular reason why you *must*
install peachtree?  Is that some kind of accounting software?   Is there no
opensource equivalent?  No programs that can import peachtree data?
