I have a new computer with Vista-64 and have a few programs that won't work yet with 64. The computer came with two 500 gb hard drives. C: already boots to 64 and now I was wondering if I could make the other hard drive boot to something else. Do I need to reformat that hard drive (Let's call it E:)? Should I just put Windows XP on it or can I put Vista-32 on it? When my machine starts how do I tell it which OS to load? Do I have to put the same programs, that I have on C:, on E: also? Like Office XP and Norton Internet Security.

Thanks,

I'm no dual boot expert but you don't need to reformat your drive(s) in order to put another OS on one of them. You just need to create another partition on which ever drive(s) you want to put the OS on. Just wait for some one who knows what they're doing to reply before you do anything.
