Grub of LILO should be easy to configure to the root partition on each 
drive easily.  You just add a line (Grub) or a stanza (LILO) that points 
to the appropriate kernel and partition and away you go.

You will probably need to do some work on the second installation to get it 
to boot properly from the second drive.  If it is not already very 
customized, the easiest thing to do may be to set up the hardware the way 
you want it and then reinstall RH 9 on the second drive.  It will probably 
show up as hdc.
