Hi,

Does your mainboard support boot-device selection? If so, you can put
both hdd in master and slave position and just select which hdd (IDE0 or
IDE1) to boot everytime you turn on your machine.

You can also put your Linux hdd in primary master position and Win2k hdd
in another position and configure the bootloader (GRUB or LILO) in Linux
hdd to boot from Win2k hdd.

Hope this helps.
