I want to install another hdrive with Linux on it in my pc. I don't want to partition the first hdrive with XP on it and install Linux on it also, I want 2 hard drives. from all the research i've done the easiest and less costly way is to buy a device called a NickLock. An internal device to install in a bay and use it's key to choose which hdrive I want to use when i boot the pc.
Do you know where I can purchase one of these? I've tried main pc stores and several websites but haven't found one yet that sells this.
Thanks,Jim

If you want to install Linux on the secondary drive, all you need is a bootloader from the Linux installation. It would always ask you which OS you want to start up when you fire up the machine.
I'd ask for better clarification in the Operating Systems forums, more specifically the Linux forum.
