[CentOS] Bother

This afternoon, after my fiasco with the other machine, I decided to 
bring the drive home and install it in the primary machine here, boot 
from the normal drive, then mount the 4.1 i386 drive so I could make 
changes and check things.  What happened next was totally unexpected.  
After decompressing the kernel and starting the boot, there were all 
kinds of error messages scrolling off the screen, and so fast, I could 
not see what it was all about, but the boot halted at some point.  After 
seeing that, I decided maybe it was not a good idea after all, but I'd 
done the same thing with an i386 version 3.5 with no problems. 

Is there some reason why I should not be able to boot from my normal 
drive, CentOS 4.2 x86_64, but still have the 4.1 i386 version on a 
secondary drive, even tho it was not automounted?

Also, while on the subject, I found out that a FreeBSD drive is not 
mountable under Linux.  It recognized the drive as a Sun ufs drive.  
Don't suppose there is any way around that problem is there?
