Is there a reason why you can not do this under knoppix?

Your bootloader won't complain.  It wont be doing much of anything from 
a drive that is not connected...  Restructuring /etc/lilo.conf or 
/boot/grub/menu.lst (or the equivalent) is reccomended.  I would suggest 
you at least look through it.

I absolutely recommend that you do this with knoppix.
