you can install a second copy of xp, but you will have to purchase a full retail version of it. You cannot use the copy you already have installed on the other drive.

oh okay then i read just after i posted this that i could use a program called Norton ghost to copy the contents of the drive (master) to the second drive (slave).which would imitate the entire contents of the drive includeing the os (windows xp)?

many thanks

it is a violation of microsofts eula to install the second copy using ghost.
Under microsoft terms you can only have one copy installed at a time. As I said, to be legal you must purchase and install a second copy if you want to have two copies installed on one computer.
