    Simply install one OS on one of the HD's, then install the other OS on the other. You need to boot to the CD to choose which HD/Partition that you want to install to.

    You will probably have to load the SATA drivers before the install when XP asks you to "press F6 to install third party SATA, RAID, SCSI adapters etc" or something like that.
