Not sure if it goes here so move if the urge is felt.
I got a new comp, but to use the money my parents agreed to put in to pad the cost I had to buy it whole instead of building my own like I wanted to do (something about warrantees n' things) but anyway it has a 200GB SATA hard drive that xp home and its recovery partition came on.
I really don't want to mess with any of that. Instead I had the idea to add a 80GB SATA or so in the extra bay and put fedora core 3 on it, that way avoiding partitioning the 200GB and messing with GRUB and the rest hopefully.
I would like to set it up, so when its turned on regularly it boots right from the 200GB right into xp, and only have it boot from the 80GB when I boot it from a cd or a USB drive or something.
Possible? Too much trouble? I have the extra SATA ports on my mb and the extra power connectors and internal bay, and my BIOS supports multiple hard drives (from what I can see) and booting from a USB drive.
