    I've installed Tiger on two different drives (dual boot) and would like to be able to select which one at start up instead of selecting it in System Preferences and rebooting.

    Is this possible?

    I'm using a Powerbook (Aluminum 1.5GHz 15" to be exact).

    AFter the POST chime, hold down Option.

    This will poll all the buses and list all boot-capable volumes. Select and hit the right-pointing-arrow icon.
