I don't know where exactly to post this message, maybe I'm in the wrong place... sorry if I am. But anyhow, I will explain my issue here, then ask my question. I have 2 hard drives in my computer, on one I setup WindowsXP 2002 Professional. On the other I have good old Windows98 SE. The reason I did this is because some of my favorite programs/games that I could run on 98 don't work with XP. When I installed XP I upgraded from 98, and it warned me about certain programs that wouldn't be compatible... but not all of them. That's not my problem however, I'm growing tired of switching hard drives manually every time I want to use a different operating system. Is there some software or even a command I can tell my computer to ask me which hard drive I want to boot from? Or is that not possible? I'm aware that I could partition one single hard drive, into 2 partitions each with a different operating system, but I do not wish to do this... if I can help it. Any help would be appritiated! Thanks.

I bet System Commander can handle it. There's an option within it to hide one partition/drive from another if necessary. In this case, with 2 OSes both of which insist on being the C drive, I think it'd be necessary to use that option. Go to your local bookstore and consult (or better yet, buy) The Multi-Boot Configuration Handbook by Roderick Smith. System Commander is made by V-Com.
Check their website; use Google if you have to.
