This would be a good idea if the removable drive could be made the C:
drive. Is this likely to be possible?
On the laptops I have, (Lenovo and Acer) I wouldn't like to try swapping
drives on a daily basis. The Acers all have some small bits of tin
around the drive that would have to be transferred, meaning more little
screws to lose. I tried, but failed, to find anyone who could supply
these little 'cages'. The agents Acer referred me to were a dead loss.
I haven't seen any replies about the XP licensing issues for two copies
alternating on the same machine. This would be a useful thing to know.

will boot from the D: (actually the first primary partition if the
secondary) drive if it contains a primary partition. This has been a
feature of every system I've owned for over 20 years.
If you install an operating system on D:, you just have to setup the
booter on C: to let you boot from D:. Windows ssytems have used the
boot.ini file (root directory, system, hidden) to control this for
years. I've even used it to boot Linux from an extended partition.
