    If your first disk crashes, assuming the boot files are not all trashed you can have an entry point to boot files on the second drive in your grub.conf file on the first drive. If the second drive is empty as you indicate in your other post, nothing will happen. Grub puts a minimal amount of code in the master boot record. Most of the necessary files are on a /boot or / partition. I'm not sure what your intended purpose is, for backup or redundancy in case of failure? If that's the case, look into using RAID.

    Also, it would have been a good idea to start a new thread rather than reviving a 7 year old thread.
