    Question Dual Boot With Two different HDD?

    Is it possible to dual boot with two different hard drives? One Operating system on one and one on the other? I already have Windows XP, and i want to buy another hard drive to install another OS *nix based. I really don't want to dual boot from the one hard drive i have because its only a 40 gig. So I want to know if its possible to dual boot from two different hard drives, an OS on each. I know its possible to have up to four on one hard drive. But i wanna use two diferent ones... one on each.

    Yep,

    Fairly easily I might add. I have SuSE & Win98 on a 120gb hdd and Slack & XP on an 80gb hdd. I use a cute little boot loader called "OSL2000" Just Click Here:

    and it's newer brother "XOSL" can be found Click Here:

    However Lilo or Grub will work and they should come with the Linux OS.

    Cheers.

    I downloaded the original "OSL" before is was updated to "OSL2000" and I liked it so much that I went ahead and send the guy $25 for "OSL200". I personally like the program and use the heck out of it.

    cheers
