Shouldn't be too hard. You just need a bootloader.|
Here's one I just googled up that will handle XP And
They even have a tutorial for the same:
There may be better ones out there, I dunno since I
haven't messed with bootloaders for Windows much.
Only time I ever used them was dual booting linux and
XP. But they worked great for that!
The advantage of this method over plugging and
unplugging hard drives is you can access data on
both... So for example if you have an upgrade or
whatever you want to plop on FSX, you can do it to
both your XP and your Vista install without having to
change out hard drives and reboot, etc.

Im thinking of placing a 2nd hard drive on my PC and
installing XP on it for running Falcon.
I know people have more than on operating system on a
PC and select which to use when they boot though I
had no idea how to do this? Can any of you point me
in the right direction?
Currently my PC is configured to run FS9 and X with
Vista, since it works well I dont want to undo it.
It takes forever to reconfigure the sim after a clean
operating system install.
