Yes. Linux isn't picky about such things the way Windows and company
are. LILO (the Linux boot-loader) includes a moderately ugly hack to
coerce DOS into booting off a second hard drive, but Linux shouldn't
complain. I have two hard drives, and use the second as a rescue
disk. I've never run into any problems getting it booted off the
second hard drive (beyond what I caused by screwing around with it :-)
ts> Are there other things I should be worried about?
Well, don't reinstall Windoze without a Linux boot disk standing by.
Terminology is important, too; your second hard drive isn't called D:,
it's called /dev/hdb or /dev/sdb. :p
