    I have 2 hard drives installed, 1 with XP on and 1 i use for back up.
    My XP hard drive is using NTFS, I have just partitioned my 2nd hard drive, making 4 partitions, 1 partition is formatted as FAT32 and I have installed Win 98, the 2nd partition is FAT and I am trying to install Win 95, without success at the moment I keep getting a SU-0013 error and I dont know how to get over it.
    Both partitions are 2gig.

    If I do manage to get Win 95 on will I have to use a 3rd party boot loader.

    Or wont this work at all.

    Lonman Bleh!

    Yeah, you'll need a third party bootloader. 95, 98, and (I think - not positive) ME, need to be on the primary partition (w/o third party help).

    There's a pretty good article about multi-booting on the Micorsoft website... give me a couple minutes and I'll see if I can find it and edit my post here.

    Here's one article:;en-us;Q217210

    Here's the one I was thinking of:

    These articles pertain to just utilizing the operating systems own capabilities. You'll need to read the documentation of a third party boot loader to use it. Good luck.
