 Post subject: *Boot Second Hard Disk fails

On an old P3 machine that I keep for some legacy s/w I need I have Win98SE on one hard drive and XUBUNTU on another (shows as D drive under Win98).

To boot XUBUNTU I have to disconnect the Win98 HD and then reconnect it when I want to boot Win98 - this is a pain.

I was hoping the *Boot Second Hard Drive option of UBCD would ease the pain - it doesn't.

It comes up -
Cannot read Master Boot Record
boot:

and then if left to ponder its options it chooses Win98.

I'm a Linux newbie - am I missing a piece of Linux magic or am I expecting too much from UBCD?

Did you try one of the boot managers on UBCD such as Gujin or Smart Boot Manager?
