2nd Hard Drive

    I am about to install an additional drive and would like advice on the
    master/slave set up I should use.

    Current Drive = 20G with W98se (currently master)
    New Drive = 80G on which I plan to partition and install WXP pro.

    Eventually I will install all apps on the new drive and just use XP pro.

    Should I make the new HD the master or leave things as they are and make it
    the slave?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    If you want 98 and XP on 2 drives, the 98 drive MUST be first.
    98 WILL NOT run from the second drive.

    (Unless you have a bios that will allow boot from any drive)
