Question How do I setup the boot sector?

Yellow.

I got two hds installed (well actually 3, but anyway). The other one has xp and 2k installed and the other one has the boot sector for for them. I wanna know how to make the "os hd" to be able to boot by itself, in case i remove the other hd. Do I have to make it active, or mess with the boot files somehow or what?

Also the 3rd (sata) drive has xp installed and I'd like to add that os to the "os boot selection" thing that appears befor windows loads, so that i don't have to change the boot priority in bios every time i wanna boot from that hd.

Cheers.
