Use of Colorado Tape Drive on Multiple Operating Systems

I have partitioned one of my hard drives and added another OS. I have tried to install my Colorado 5GB on my new OS but the software CBII ver 9 will not load. It says I can only have one tape drive of this type. Is there anyway to install the software so that I can operate the tape drive from either OS or am I limited to using with one OS only? When I boot my system, only one OS is active the other is hidden.
I have installed a second WinMe so that I can migrate some programs to the new OS to help speed my computer up.

Thanks for the reply. I finally got my second OS to accept CB II. FYI - both OSs are WinMe
