HELP Dual OS WinXP and Win98 install


D

David

I would like to install two OS; Win98 for some older games and WinXP for
general stuff and newer games. Is it best to install 98 first, and then XP
on a subsequent partition of the same HD, or vice versa? FAT32 or NTFS is of
no consequence to me; I will not have to access Win98 files from XP. Is
there an easy program which allows dual booting? I am familiar with System
Commander but have had trouble installing 98 after XP using this... I end up
losing my XP partition completely!

* Yes


FAT32 or NTFS is of

* NTFS is the native file system of Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 and is always
recomended.

* None is required. Windows XP will create the dual boot loader for you
automatically.
