Two Hard Drives - BIOS Boot Menu Usage
I'm currently running only a single 80GB hard drive with Windows XP, however I want to start Slackin' again as my primary OS and only use Windows for gaming. About to go buy a 200GB hard drive for Windows + Games, and then the current 80GB drive will be for Linux.
I'd rather Slackware not touch the Windows hard drive, and vice versa (except that I'll need a small partition at the beginning of the 80GB for my pagefile). In that respect, can I simply install LILO to the MBR of the secondary HD and choose to boot from that drive in the BIOS boot menu that is accessed on my MB by pressing F11 at post?
That way if I ever need to reinstall Windows (and I will, because it sucks and rots over time), it doesn't ruin my LILO.
