    making a boot disk


    Hey, I installed windows XP and mandrake linux to 2 seperate hard drives. And everytime I switch, I need to enter the bios and change the hard drive priorities.

    How would I make a boot disk so that I could leave it set to the windows XP hard drive in my bios, but use the disk to boot into linux?

    I'm pretty sure you can boot your Mandrake with the Installation disk.
