    I would like to know if the following scenario would cause any problems:

    OS 9.2 already installed on a <10GB HD set as master.

    There's another internal HD (75GB) set as slave. I would install Tiger onto this drive.

    This is in a 400mhz Powermac G4.

    Would this create any problems? Sorry, I've never tried to boot an OS from a slave drive.

    You should be fine. Holding the Option key after the stratup "bong" should give an option of picking the drive you desire to boot from.

    Thanks, another great MR member has helped me a lot over iChat (been talking).

    To get it to boot into Tiger by default, selecting the Tiger installation from start up disk will make it start up in what I select, right? I know it does that for like 9 and X installed on the same drive, can't see why it wouldn't work if they're installed on multiple drives.
