    Is it possible to set up a dual boot with Win XP pro on one drive and Win 98 on another?

    I currently have a dual boot on my 120Gb HD and a 40Gb as a slave. I would like to have Xp and my data partition on the 120 and Win98 on the 40gb, but have the choice at bootup to go into either OS

    yes, you can do that....just install 98 first, and then install XP on your other drive. XP setup will take care of the bootloader.

    if you want 98 to be able to access your data, be sure that the XP partition is FAT32 instead of NTFS.

    Right. Make sure you install 98 before you install XP and everything should work ok. :)
