Some BIOSes can do it. Normally what you do is go to the boot order
section of the BIOS (where you can change between floppy, CDROM,
harddrive and net and change the order that the machine attempts to boot
from them). Some BIOSs list multiple hard drives in there - HDD-0,
HDD-1, HDD-2 etc. If your BIOS has this, you can boot from drives other
than the primary master (also known as HDD-0 or hda1).
