    Hiya,

    Just got hold of Disk Director and wondered...

    when I start the computer, the boot selector loads up and shows me my current C: drive operating system.

    question is, if I boot the computer from another windows xp cd and install windows on another physical harddrive, does acronic selector see this and i can boot from this drive instead?

    i wondered if this was possible because i'd like to have two different boot environments, my current configuration and another one for other things...

    thanks.
    david.
