I'm looking for some help with setting up the following :

At the moment I've got 2 SATA-disks (1 with the C: partition - 1 with an E: & F: partition). On the C: is my current XP installed.
Now I want to add a 3rd SATA-disk as a new partition and also install XP onto it.

Does someone give some extra details on how to do this.
For instance :
- when I've selected the new partition for the installation, on a certain moment during the installation the computer needs to reboot. Does automatically boot and contineous the setup or does it goes straight to my current XP.
- is there a possibillity to "change" the names in the boot.ini file. So the other users for this pc can select the right xp at the start-up.
- ...

All handy tips are welcome !

Thx

Right click on MyComputer > Properties > Advanced > StartUp & Recovery > System Startup > Edit > change the names

When I installed xp pro on a new partition the default in the os selection menu changed to the XP setup .
