|easy question, maybe - switching between hard drives

hi yet another noob here.|
maybe an easy question, but don't know how to search for this. i was just about to install fc into my laptop to dual boot w/ xp, when i remembered that i have an extra hard drive lying around. if i just replace the hard drive, install fc into the 2nd hard drive, and just keep switching back and forth between the hard drives, instead of dual booting, is that bad for my laptop? other than the general hassle, any reason why i shouldn't do it this way? or is that not even possible?
any comments/suggestions very much appreciated.
i don't think these specs will matter, but just in case...
- laptop: compaq r3240ca
- installing fedora core 1, because it's the one that came w/ my book, and i want as few problems as possible while i'm learning
