    Ok so i have 4 partition on 1 harddrive.
    1 has Windows 95 installed
    1 has win 98
    1 has win 2k
    1 has xp


    here is my boot ini

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
    c:\="Microsoft Windows 98"

    my win98 is on the D drive. Changeing the C to a D will cause win98 to not boot. (the c in c:\="Microsoft Windows 98"

    So my question is...

    How do i get win 95 on the boot order?
    If i reboot in dos mode from WIN98
    goto my c:\win95 folder and run win.com i can boot win 95.
    SO my win 95 install works, but i want it on my boot.ini so i can boot right to it.

    Anyone have any suggestions

    You're missing all the Linus distro's. But whne you put Mac OS 10 on the 5th partition I'll be impressed.

    Not sure how you formatted the partitions or what order you installed the operating systems but you have to follow a certain order.

    I don't feel like typing it all out so read.
