Hi Guys,

Well this machine all started out simple...... Anyway. I've come to the 
same conclusion, separate disks, in my reading around the topic today.

At some point I might even virtualise the legacy Svr 2K3 system. I think 
I may also have stubbed my toe on a XP/Svr 2K3 issue related to booting 
from other than sector 63.

Thank you for your time - much appreciated.

:-) Ken
