One tower, two hard drives with 2 operating systems

I just bought a new HP tower with (2) 500gb hard drives.  The primary hard drive has Vista on it.  I want to install Windows XP on the second hard drive so I can stiil use my older HP printer & HP scanner.  Will this work?

Only problem you should have is finding XP drivers. And I found this to be a task when I tried it.

After installing XP, be sure and run SP 2.

 

Good luck and let me know what happens, as there are a lot of people trying this.

HP does not recommend this and gives no support.......
