Currently, I am running my personal computer on Windows XP.

I have an EXTRA internal hardrive that is 100 GB that is NOT BEING USED, and I want to load Windows 2000 on it so I can run with 2 seperate Operating Systems.

This EXTRA hard drive (100 GB) has been:
a) Formatted
b) Layout = partitioned
c) type = Basic
d) File system = NTFS
e) Status = Healthy (Active)

I burned a CD with Windows 2000 OS on it.


How do I "BOOT" my personal computer from this CD (external CD Drive) with the Windows 2000/OS on it, so that I can then load Windows 2000 on my EXTRA internal hard drive: 'W'?

Is this doable?
Having Windows XP (Drive:C) and Windows 2000 (Drive: W) on the same personal computer?

Thanks so much, in advance!
