    I would suggest that you install a small linux Partition on the first Hard drive. Durning the install specify that the main Linux partions (including Swap, Linux for the root, and the User partion) are on the second HD. Basicly then only the boot partition is on the first HD. YOu will then have a choice of which from the three OS's you wish to boot.
    Or, in the BIOS you have the choice to determin which is the First (Boot) Drive. (same as setting it to boot from CD, only specify your 2nd HD)
    The only other choice is to be constantly changing HD's. -d
