Dude, I did that like a year ago when the first Macintels came out, lol
It'* cool though, just knowing that you can do it, and also it'* cool knowing that you don't need to buy some stupid "chic" PC that'd cost you a '92 SSEi

Cant you either change the boot directory or just go into startup and change boot sequence?

nope, its not that simple when you are doing dual boots with two diffrent OS'*.

You need a program to modify the Boot record to it comes up with an option of witch OS you want to boot from.

I thought it automatically did that on Boot up? I remember loading windows 2k over win98 and It gave me a choice on boot up.

I guess its different with updated OS'*

IF you load an OS that has the Smarts to Ask you and see that yoiu have more then one OS installed then Yes.
It will do that then, But not always all OS'* will see other OS'* installed and give you that option.

Windows will do that, and Linux will do that in most cases.

But i dont think Mac OS X will do that, cuz it didn't on mine.


Edit* Also if you dont installed windows "after" you install the other OS it will not see that you have two and will not ask witch one to boot to.

Doesn't Norton Partition Magic have that option that you can install a dual-boot menu?
