  1. Here is a question I would like answered for my wife. She wants to put two hard drives running the same OS: XP Home SP2, on the computer. One would be her account and one mine. I do not hink it is possible to dual boot the same OS on the computer, if it was Vista or Linux I would say yes but not both the same. Am I wrong or is there a way to dual boot like this? Totally lost here.

    Hi,

    Yes you won't be able to dual boot the same OS. You will be able if you dual boot XP with Vista or Vista with Linux and so on.

    Better way is to create two user accounts on your XP and change the Documents location to one HDD and yours to another one and you're done.
