problems dual-booting xp

I have an 80GB HD with 3 partitions(65GB to XP1, 5GB to XP2, and the rest to temporary files). The reason for the dual booting is because i want one copy of XP to only load essential files so i can play my games at optimal settings. on my 160GB i've got just data files split 4 ways(games, movies, music, etc.) Now on my I drive(which is games) i can access it only on my first boot of xp, not on the serond. it says its inaccessible. any idea how to remedy this?

Have you tried running the recovery console in XP setup?
