Okay is it possible to Dual Boot using XP Pro for both boots?
i.e: I want to have the option to boot XP @ startup to enable a 40Gig Hard drive to access the internet for updates gaming etc. & a 20Gig Hard drive with barebones XP with no Internet support for all internal work ( No access to the internet )
The reason I`m asking this is because I like to play around with various software which results in lots of Re-Formats. This is possible @ the moment because I`m using a caddy system with XP on both, 1. Has access to the Internet & the other does`nt.

But I`m fed up forever shutting down & restarting & changing the Drives.

Thanx in advance if you have the answer?

Get a product called VMware workstation. You can put as many OS's as you like and you never have to reboot to access them. And you can lock the network out.

Here is the link to there site.
