Yo patrick! I gotta ask you some computer junk again!

I apologise if it seems odd that I seek you out from time to time as a technical reference, but you must understand that of all the people I regularly have contact with... you're the one who tends to have equal or greater knowledge than me when it comes to computer-related topics. Yes, that's right... my technological prowess has far superceded that of all my pals here at home!

Anyway, this is probably a simple question that I could've found the answer to on Google... but I figured I'd use it as an excuse to make some livejournal waves! My PC runs Windows ME on a 40GB HD. Recently I took a spare hard drive of the same size (these are both internal IDE devices) and put Windows XP on it. I hope to slowly rebuild my system on the XP drive, and free up the ME drive for user files only. Anyway... this haphazard approach to reorganising my computer life (well, my Windows section of my computer life) is going to force me to switch back and forth between booting W-ME on the one drive, and booting XP on the other. My question is... if I install both drives in the computer at the same time, is there a way to flip-flop in the BIOS to pick which one it boots from every time? That is, I'm assuming that one of the drives will have to be the master and one will have to be the slave. Is it possible to boot from the operating system that is housed on the slave drive instead of the master, without having to open the computer case, move the shunt and IDE position? Or will I have to constantly swap the drives physically in order to boot one or the other?

You are trying to duel boot your computer. That's easy. There is lots of utilities to help you with that. I know them better in linux, but let's do a quick google search and see what we can do.

hmmm... this seems to be a good place to start

Yeah I'm really not sure why I bothered you. I got the guts to try what I figured would work, and it did. I put in both drives on the primary IDE chain, one as master and one as slave. When I want to boot from XP, I enter the BIOS and switch the order of the boot drives. It was that simple.
