My PC has 2 internal hard drives designated C & D.They are both connected to the MB via SATA connections.The OS is XP Prof'.The BIOS is currently using only the C drive.Is it possible to configure the BIOS to utilise both the hard drives in parallel?

You cannot configure the BIOS to do this you will need to run your HDD's in a RAID configuration...

I think asterias(I could be wrong)wants to do this
,configure in BIOS so that one moment s/he's in C drive,another moment,just press a button,s/he's operating windows in D drive.

If this is what you're in mind then the answer is no.

However(depends on your motherboard)you can install another windows on D drive and use Boot Menu(usually press F8 while booting up)to choose which drive to log on.
