I have an 80GB and a 40GB hard drive. My primary hard drive contains Windows. On the second hard drive, I want to install Fedora 15.

When the system boots, there should be a menu to select the operating system. Is this possible? Where do I install the boot loader? On the primary or the secondary hard drive?

If you already have XP on primary then simply install Fedora on the second drive. Most Linux editions can detect Windows (or other system) and will work just fine without worries.

I don't think it's important where you'll install it. Let Fedora worry about it. –  Nux Sep 9 '11 at 12:33
