Default Two Operating Systems on One Hard Drive

How can I have ( I am guessing It can be done) two different operating systems on one hard drive. ?? i.e. : ME and XP (Home Ed)


How do I place two different operating systems on two
DIFFERENT hard drives on same computer??
i.e.: ME on one hard drive and XP (Home Ed) on the other hard drive

If you want on one hard drive you install ME first on C: (recommended) than you install XP and choose D: and you're done you'll have 2 operation systems and you'll choose which to boot at the start than if you want 2 OSes on different HDD i had that already i'll link you
