Re: installing vista onto second hard drive

You won't save money. You would only save money if you planned to overwrite the XP already on your computer. But if you want to continue to use the XP as well as the Vista, then just buy the full edition of Vista. Full editions are a lot less hassle anyway just because of issues like these. The operating system is so important to your computer that it is not the place to skimp. If you need to save money do it by using Open Office and things like that.
