dual boot

Does "MAC" mean apple operating system like OS X?
If so, do you know that your computer will run (is compatible with) "MAC"?
To test:
a. enter BIOS and set the second hdd as the boot drive and reboot.
b. remove the first hdd and reboot hdd.
If this works the only problem should be a minor rewrite of grub.conf (menu.lst).

I would add the following to grub.conf (or menu.lst if your distribution does not use grub.conf):

title "MAC"
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

Then with both hdd installed and the original BIOS boot order (first boot drive linux and second boot drive "MAC"), boot and try the "MAC" option.
