I have two hard drives installed. What I am wishing to know if I can have Win95 installed on both drives?, so that can run my web browser from the smaller hard drive and operate the normal windows from the larger drive.
Will this may mean will have to go back to dos to start which ever hard drive that I wish to opertate from?.

As far as I know this would be possible but if you wanted to boot off the other drive you would need to go into bios and change the boot sequence, however probably the best use for a second hard drive is to set it up as a slave and use it to store backup files.

You need to install a boot manager in the master boot record of the first hard drive. This will give you the choice of which operating system you want to use at boot time. A good freeware boot manager is XOSL available from www.xosl.org. XOSL gives you a nice graphical boot menu.
