Switch from XP to Vista to XP?

As I am not ready to switch permanently to Vista just yet I have put Vista on one HDD whilst my original XP installation is on another HDD.

At the moment to switch between the two I plug in a power supply to the HDD I want to boot.

My question is this,is there a switch mechanism out there that would change the power supply to one HDD from the other? Or perhaps a work around?

Thanks.

One way (not much used these days) is to buy two HD Bays.

Put a HD in each and simply slip and lock home the OS you want to use, before switching the PC on.

This can also be useful for security purposes, literally to take home a HD which has commercially valuable data, rather than leave it in the office.
