If you're talking about the cable select jumper setting on the hard drives, the preference is to use master & slave. Other than that, try installing a boot manager such as GAG. I don't know if it's still being supported, but it will definitely work with DOS & Win98.

If you only need access to one drive at a time you can set the drive type of the one you don't want to use to NONE in cmos/bios setup. The system will then boot from the other. In that case you'd need both drives set active by fdisk.

Of course a boot manager would be an easier route.
