you reall should start you own thread ,but yes you can do what you ask ,quit simply ,create a programs folder on second drive ,its path will be d:\programs ,so when you are installing most programs it will tell you where its going to install the program like C:\program files ,when it dose just type d:\programs ,instead of whats there .

How can I choose which system I use when I boot in that I want to save the data on the old c drive with xp but also want to work with vista on the new system... I am computer dumb... Can I do it Thank you in advance
\My xp system mb just blew up.. And I have to purchase a new tower which I am certain with vista. I want to take the c drive from my old tower and install it into the new tower. I have read that vista allows for duel boots. So how do I run the xp without loosing any data from the old drive.. And how will vista recognize the other operating system on the old drive. Do I have to reinstall vista on the new drive for it to recognize xp on the old drive. I know that this doesn't make much sense... But, please bear with me for I am DUMB with computers... And any assistance that you could offer would be greatly appreciated... Thank You in advance
