    Dual Booting Win XP & Win 98

    Hi all,

    It's been quite some time since my last visit to this cboard. I'm back now with a question.

    I used to do dual boot between 98 and XP by installing 98 first before XP. No problem.

    Now, I've already installed XP on my system and I don't wanna wast my time reinstalling XP again. Anyone here know how to install 98 for dual boot to my current XP system? All my hdd partitions are on FAT32.

    Thanks in advance.
    It's unfulfilled dreams that keep you alive.

    I tried it once or twice in the past but ended up in having to reinstall both from the beginning! It could be tricky....

    If you dont want to get your hands dirty w/ boot.ini, use BootMagic that comes w/ PartitionMagic, it should be straight forward but still could be tricky tho...

    Come cast your shadow over me
    and I'll cast mine all over thee
    Take me away, into the shades
    where there is no light of day
