Can someone give me step by step instructions on how to do this?
I have WinXP Pro
You can either use a boot loader like system commander and such, or you can just make 2 partitions
Install win 98 onto the one, then install XP onto the other, and the XP bootloader should detect 98 and add it to your bootlist at startup
if one was to install 98 second, then boot using the xp cd and select repair, would that also work?
Yeah, that would fix up the boot file, i think...
Goatman, good rule of thumb to follow in multi-booting -- *oldest OS first (avoids a lot of extra work/problems that way). Put 98 on your c:\ partition, and run XP setup while in 98 and install it to another partition.
* you can put 95 OR 98 on your primary partition, 2k next partition, ME next, and finally XP -- all will work from the same drive using that simple precept - oldest first.
Use partition magic's pq boot
Why use third party boot loaders if they're not needed?
my point exactly lonman nt loader works great why screw with it...just arrow up or down to the os and enter easy as that...now why complicate things
I have been running my current set up for a while and don't wanna loose my HD, how do I add it after the fact, I can't get the Windows 98 setup to run
