Don't both of the operating systems need to be on the master drive

Were the two O/S installed as separate entities or were they installed whilst in the master and slave mode.Because if the installation was done separately and then arranged as master and slave,I don't think you can select which one to boot too.You need to install one of the systems whilst it is in the master &slave mode, WinXP has a built in Boot Manager which allows you to choose which drive to boot to.
This is what I found when I installed two H/Ds
on my comp
However if this is wrong some one will no doubt correct me

To have the choice of which os to startup you will have to go into the bios and change the boot sequence ie ide0 ide1 etc
