I currently use Windows XP, but want to dual-boot with Red Hat 9. I also need a new hard drive. I was hoping to kill 2 birds with one stone and keep Windows on the old hard drive, and Red Hat on the new one. I'm told that for dual boot they'd both need to be masters (is that true?)

The thing is the current hard drive is actually a pair of hard drive, but I have a RAID controller so it appears as one drive.

The current BIOS setup is-

Primary Master - Striping (RAID 0) for Array #0, Mode: UDMA 5, Status: HDD0
Secondary Master - the same, but Status: Hidden

Primary and Secondary slaves both have no drive on them.

So: Can I move the "Hidden" drive onto the Primary Slave and have it all working as normal, freeing up the Secondary Master to put the new HDD in?
Also, if I did put Linux on the new HDD, how do I set it to dual-boot?

Many thanks

Windows does not like it when another OS is a master, and windows is a slave...............
