[Plug] Hard Drive cutoff switch/cable?

  A bit of a hardware question: [not linux specific]

My friends have a need to install a second harddrive (their current one)
in a new computer they are getting.  They want to be able to TOTALLY cut
off access to the harddrive when they are using the harddrive/software on
the other harddrive.  I am assuming that sometimes they will boot from HD
#1 and sometimes from harddrive #2 -- when they boot from HD #2, they
don't have to worry about turning off HD#1 -- but when they boot #1, they
need to be able to turn off #2.

Note: these are IDE drives.

Any ideas?
