I also have the same setup as you do almost. I have hda as XP and hdb for Mandrake 9.0, tried 9.1 but it sukked eggs as far as the install went. It would not install using the GUI mode, had to do it in text mode, but it did install and after all was said and done when the machine boots up it goes into the Mandrake side by default, just like 9.0 did. I won't fuss to much since it was a sorta freebie in exchange for a copy of XP. My only question to all the other Mandrake users is how can I change that boot situation so that I can get it to boot to XP vice Mandrake.
