With the 'stock' untilities provided by either of these you can't.
Since both disks occupy an entire drive - about the only
option you have is to turn bios scan off for the drive you wish
to ignore on boot up in scsi utilities menu - PROVIDING - you
disk controller permits you to do that. Adaptec and Buslogic
both do that (on their newer controllers).
You'll probably need 1) one of the commercial units, 2) osbs,
or 3) try putting LILO there.
I have my disks in removeable trays that I can just turn the
power off to control booting to the first drive, or use the
controller setups to boot from any other ID I wish.
eg - If I turn off drive 0 and disable drive ID 1, the system
will boot into DOS from ID6 on a Zip drive.
