I have a AMD 64 lap top running MS XP
I have a desk top running RH9. The desk top has a quick release HD bay, so I can swap out between RH9 and SUSE [i dont know which I like the best, but that is not important now..] quickly.
I want to be able to use my HD from my desk top as an external HD to my XP laptop, whilst still running RH9.
I then want to use RH9 to access the www [as I do from my desk top]
Is this possible and what is the best way tro do this ?
When I boot, would XP see the external drive as a partition and allow me to boot directly into RH9 as an HD without booting XP, or would something else happen.

Thanks
Piloti
