For the fdisk tip on the MBR on a second disk in question


Now that I needed to know.  And if you can make the primary partition active or inactive on the second disk then there's even more points.

Doesn't work.  I have to use Ranish to set partitions active on second disks in systems.  And DR-DOS's fdisk might do it as well.

Oh well fdisk is a bit primitive to say the least but it still has its usefulness. :>)
