Re: [SLUG] Linux on a 2nd drive?

You will have to install the boot parameters on the firs disk with LILO or
Grub. Then you can install the second rest on the second.

But there is a better way.

There is a Hard drive selector now called Trios. It is about $75 but will
allow you to boot to any 1 of 3 Hard drives that you install.

I have been using it now for 6 months.
It takes all the hassels out of multi OS'es on 1 machine.

I hope this helps. Michael.
