I bought a 60g hard drive to install in my XP/Mandrake 9.2 box. I was thinking of installing XP on the 60G and linux on the exitsting 40G. Clean install on both. How can I dual boot from 2 drives? Is there a better way to do this than I suggested so as not to have to reinstall everything? Thanks in advance.

What do you have in your existing 40GB harddisk??

Is it windows??If yes,and if you want to keep the data in that harddisk,then you will have to install Mandrake on 60GB hrddisk(though it will not take the whole space)

Or else do a clean install,Install XP in your 60GB hrddisk first and then proceed to install Mandrake in 40GB.

Thanks for the reply. I did a clean install on both and it worked just fine.
