    Hi,
    could someone tell me the best way to set up my PC to dual boot with XP home edition and W98 se.
    I have XP installed already and do not want te format the drive again, but would like the option to dual boot W98 se.
    Any advice would be great
    Thanks

    Change your boot.ini file in XP to add the W98SE drive/partition. Do a search in forums and there are a couple that will tell you what to do, deprending on weather you have a second drive or just a partition.

    I just installed 98 first. Then installed XP. XP automatically sets up the dual boot for you. You just choose when it asks you!
