I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to use lilo to boot linux on one drive and windows on the other driver. You need to use fdisk to format the drives to the right format. Most linux setups will help you setup the driver for you. If you want more help you will have to post more info on what linux you will be using and where you are.
