Presently I have 2 hds. On 1 I have a dual boot 98se as C xp Home as D. On the other hard drive and I have xp pro but as slave on the same IDE cable to use in emergency as I was having a few problems which now seem to be cured. I find now that I dont need the win 98 as I now have everything working fine and would like to Merge it all together.(C+D) I have access to Partition Magic 7 if I need. I really dont want to wipe all just at the moment. Also for Video work will I be better to put the other HD on a separate cable on the Raid.??
