Mike, thanks for your help, so since I do have Linux successfully installed and I have Windows XP successfully installed but on two different hard drives, how do I make WinXP boot manager understand how to dual boot using Linux as an option?
Is WinXP boot manager a separate tool that I need to purchase?
