Dual HDD


Hi all
I had a clean HDD with win2k loaded, I had a spare HDD that I installed RedHat 9. now I would like to transfer some of the files from the win hdd to the Linux one. I connected both and set the win hdd as slave, the trouble is that the system wouldn't boot like that.
Any ideas on how to run them both??

Dave

It said there was critcal disk failier, something like that and the system wouldn't boot. Unpluged the power to the win hdd and the linux booted no problem at all.
