the reason i was asking if it were master, is that Vista might take over as the default OS, so you probably know about how to bring up the OS list. by doing this..
after the computer logo disappears, keep hitting the ESC key, it will bring up the OS list and you can choose wich OS you want to boot up, by up/down arrow keys.
XP is the master drive.
I'll try what you have said
cool, hope it works out for you
