I restored my windows MBR and now I need to know how to make the other Hard drive that has Ubuntu boot-able again.
I want to choose which hard drive to boot in bios. What are the steps to making the Ubuntu drive boot-able?

You'll need to install GRUB onto the hard drive which holds your Ubuntu install, that then gives you a boot sector on both your drives and will let you do the BIOS switch to change.

Can you tell us which version you are running, the old ones used GRUB and the lastest ones GRUB2 so the instrucations vary slightly and we need to get the right one.

9.04 is what is on there. I have bookmarks and some customization I'd rather not have to wipe.
If I just get the drive with Ubuntu boot-able that will be good.

Yes. You need a PPC version of Ubuntu.
