Using the Windows 7 bootloader to dual boot

I am getting a new computer with Windows 7 installed. It will contain a second hard disk on which I will install Fedora Linux. I plan to put grub in the /boot partition of that disk, so I won't be able to boot Linux directly to start. I plan to use the Windows 7 bootloader to dual boot, and I understand in principle how this is done. I set up a previous computer which was running Vista this way, using the program Easy BCD which simplified setting up the Vista bootloader. But the Easy BCD website doesn't address the question of what to do with Windows 7.

Can anyone direct me to a description of what to do for my desired end?

It's the same. Vista and Windows 7 use the same boot loader.

EasyBCD 2.0 works well with all my dual boot Windows 7/Fedora installs.
