Question Duel boot, storage and sata drives.

Is this possiable?
To have (1) Sata HD (500gb) as the XP op system on it.
Another (1) Sata HD (500gb) with evenutally Vista on it.
And be able to have it as Duel Boot, where during boot it will ask qwhat one I want to run.

Also another (2) Sata Hd's with 500gb for storage that can be accessed from both op systems.

So that whether I boot to either one OP or the other I will have 1.5 TB of space?

For the one with XP i would use something like Disk Image, and have a back of it on one of the storage drives.

On the Vista one I will find some software that can do the same thing when it is released.

See I don't need nor want to have a drive with everything that is on the main HD (the one booted) but just some saves that I could make myself at regular intivals at the time of my own choosing.

If so would I have to use any sort of Raid setup?
