Dual boot on pc with 2 hard drives


My PC is running on 2 hard drives. The master is running on winXP and my slave is running on Mandrake Linux 9.1. But i want to dual boot, so when my computer starts it display's a choice of linux,windows, default....
I don't have a clue how to do this, but i have done it on a single hd with 2 partition's. Please any info will help

It's the same as doing it on single hd with multiple partitions, you add appropriate entries in your bootloader config file pointing to the right partitions.
If you want step by step then you need to provide more information, eg which bootloader are you using, where are the operating systems installed, where is the /boot partition.
