Default can i...

I have 2 hard drives, a 120gb, and a 7gb (yes, a 7). My 120gb has xp pro w/sp2 while the 7 is just music and movies. I was wondering if I can put win me on the 7gb and alternate through o/s's by going through the bios. ME seems to work better than xp for some programs and stuff, like a few games. And will anything from my xp HD be touched?

Well, I assume they use NTFS. You can't install Windows ME on NTFS...and to be honest, if you format the 7GB Drive and reinstall WinME, you won't be able to work with the 120GB one. BUT, if you Try Windows 2000 Professional, then, it will work

What if I try to put Win XP Home SP2 on the 7GB while the 120GB has XP PRO SP2...I don't know why, I guess it would be something to do.
