    You have to use the MS-DOS CD-ROM controller. There are more
    details in the FAQ.

    That's just what one would expect.
    The problem is the swapping of the hard drives, which puts
    Windows in a old mode to access the IDE.

    The solution is simple: using FIPS to nibble some space from
    the first harddisk, check the first partition to be sure,
    use the startup diskette of the operation system you want to
    install, make a new primary partition on the first harddisk,
    and install the second OS there.

    Everything on the first HardDisk will use the IDE at full speed.

    greetings, Johan

    i'm having the same problem, it seems to conflict with the 2nd
    os's(in my case win98's) primary and secondary ide
    controllers. the problem seems to arise when gag changes
    drice letters to get the os to boot. i've been searching forums
    for a solution to no avail... let me know if you figure it out
