I have XP Home, and wish to make a dual-boot system, so I can load either XP or Linux. Is there any way to do this without paying for a partioner?

If you have 2 hard drives on your computer, Load your Linux Operating system on your other drive. Upon bootup it should ask which one you want to open.
ENTER 1 for Normal Start-up Win XP
ENTER 2 for Normal Start-up Linux
ENTER 3 for Safe Mode
Ect. if you don't choose one upon startup each time it will open up the first one automatically in so many seconds.

Thanks for feedback, is there anyway to do it with just one HD or do I need two?? The reason for linux partition is so I can see what I prefer.
