Question 2 OS's 2 HD's

I want to know if i could use two hard drives, one with XP and the other with 98SE. on the same computer. i want be able to choose which OS to load. I do NOT want one hard drive to recognize the other while windows is loaded. For example, can i have the XP harddrive set as Master, and the 98SE set as Slave. Will disabling one or the other at the BIOS allow me to load each OS separately? Will there be any conflicts with the 98SE drive being a Slave?

If you install 98SE first on one hard drive, then install XP using NTFS on the other. It will automatically let you choose which to boot to when you start up.

The 98SE OS will not be able to see the XP drive, yet the XP WILL be able to see the 98 drive.
