I have alerted the Admin's/Moderator's that you have posted in the FreeBSD forums instead of the OpenBSD forums.

If you have two drives, you will need two ARC paths representing each drive in boot.ini. I have never configured a dual drive, dual boot system, but from what I dig up, you will need something like the following in boot.ini:
Code:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows XP" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="OpenBSD" /fastdetect
Since I cannot confirm that this is the exact syntax needed, study the following articles in Microsoft's Knowledge Base:
