dual boot manager?

I have win 98 installed and tweaked and want to put xp home on a second drive. Can anyone tell me where to get or how to set up a boot manager? Also, should I make the xp drive the primary or slave or does it matter? Thanks, kim

  1. Do you want seperate boot (system & boot partition on 1 drive) or dual boot (system partition on primary & active partition) with a menu?
    It doesn't matter which one is primary master or slave.

    If you install WinXP on a separate partition, whether on a second hard drive (recommended) or on the same drive, after the installation, you'll automatically see a 30-second Bootloader after the POST that allows you to choose between the operating systems. No third-party Boot Manager is needed.
