Hello All,

I am needing a little help. BleepingComputer was in my Top Dogs folder in favorites, so I know you all can help.
The problem is setting up XP. I have so many tweaks, hacks, and settings to make my system is never secured from browsing the net before I am done tweaking. I want to finish all my configurations before I even go on the net, but I cant because I have one computer and it takes a couple weeks to finish all this.
I am wondering if I can create another partition and somehow create an install there also, in addition to the install I will be using to surf the net with. Somehow switch between the two until I am finished tweaking. Then image the good install and use it for clean installs.
Or I have another 10GB hard drive I can install also. Can I switch between the 2 drives in the bios (choose which is boot drive), until I get done. Image that install, then put it on my 80GB cuda?

Thank you kindly

The following article is somewhat relevant to your situation.
