    Question dual booting xp and lindows...

    yo,
    i need to no how to erm set up lindows and xp to dual boot. i have had my erm xp install for ages so dont want to reformat...just put an old 3gb drive in as a slave for lindows.i set it as master first and installed lindows on there to test it.now its slave.if needed i will erm reformat the lindows and redo it.so how do i dual boot both of them? can i by any chance do it using the windows text style boot loader thing, u know like the one u get when erm u have 9se and 2000pro...it has the option of which one u wanna use,then u select it and press return and it loads it.or i will use if needed another boot program.
    cheers

    EDIT: just forgot to say: i want xp on my main 120gb drive,and lindows on the 3gb slave...

    the installer would have done it automatically if you hadn't arsed around hiding drives & swapping master/slave
