change the pclinuxos menu.lst first if it is now the one used when booting off the second disk.
F8 at startup and I have made a common Fat32 partition, sdb3
does your mobo bios also allow ordering of drive boot sequence as well as boot device priority?
i'm assuming you are attempting 3 entirely independent boot drives. (each with either NTLoader or a grub on each drive)
I initially tried a independent dual boot where I wanted Bianca on sdo with grub and XP on hd0, neither mint or feisty would install on sd0, so I remove the 1st hd (XP on IDE) then installed to hd0 (SATA), plugged the IDE (XP) drive and was booting directly to xp visa NTLoader, but when I treid Linux (SATA prive, no joy).
I gave up (too early i think) I re-installed linux placed the grub on hd0 (IDE xp drive), could not boot either drive, got really ticked at this point and did some digging in the bios of my mobo found that it not only has the option (esc in my case) to select device priority floppy, cdrom hd etc...) but sub-menu in the bios also allows selection of HD boot sequence (both IDE and SATA ) enabled and changed the boot order and suddenly happy camper. I've got a 2nd Raptor and some sort of IDE around so I'll also try this out aswell. If this goes well then I'll try with 2 SATA (since this one is still not production, seems every 2 - 6 days this ones re-buit)
