Dual Boot

I had Win98 on a machine and loaded 2000 to dual boot but,
there is no option to boot to Win98 now. Any ideas on how
to get that noption back?

Sounds like you may have done an upgrade instead of dual-boot.

No I installed to seperate drives and 2K recognized
another OS being installed and created a small partition
with a boot.ini file but Win98 is not listed in the
boot.ini.

Possibly add on a separate line to boot.ini under [operating systems]
C:\="Microsoft Windows"

Not sure what you mean by "and created a small partition with a boot.ini
file" This isn't normal behavior.

Behavior for XP will be same as for 2K.

Post your boot.ini
