    When you install multiple Operating System like that, you need to install Windows XP LAST. Some (or all?) versions of Win2k do not come with a boot menu like XP and Linux.

    Have a look at this link, like you I have 2 hdd's and have this installed on my second, now when I start up I get a screen after POST asking what OP System I want to start. Or you can set it to always start up your default OP system, then if you want to start something else you just keep your finger on Esc after POST and the boot menu will appear.

    Yes it works.
    I had XP installed first then put this program on.
    You have to load it onto a floppy then reboot from floppy to install it.

    Once installed you can do a search for operating systems and it picks them up.
    Works with NTFS, FAT32, and others including non windows.
