SATA drive and Boot Managers?! yes no?

Hello,
I would like to install two windows xp installations on my PC using a Boot manager such as XOSL, so the two OS's are completly inderpendant of each other.

My problem is that the drive is a SATA drive and I am wondering if it is possible to acctually use XOSL or Smart Boot Manager with a SATA drive.

I am sure it yes but I rather ask an expert :).

here's my tip, try to use VMware... you can have 2 independent (or more) OS operating independently on the same machine and have their own IP.

look at this:

and yes it is possible to use smart boot manager on SATA devices.

exellent. Well I dont want that WMware program booting only takes 30 seconds and I wont swap between OS constantlly, normally I have a gaming for 2 hours and work for 3 4 hours so rebooting isnt a problem.

I will try dual booting etc today or tomorrow since it will take a while to setup.

Thanks
