    Hi

    I currently have a dual booting system with win98 as both OS's, this is due to my need to have more than one version of IE installed.

    I set my system up with Partition magic and bootmagic. Currently I switch between OS's using bootmagic and have a small installation of win98 (1.2 Gb partition) which I would like to keep when upgrading my main installation of win 98 (10Gb partition). Both of these are on the C drive partition.

    I intend to reformat the 10Gb partition before installing XP on it, however the bootmagic program is installed on that drive, will this cause me any problems, will I just be able to go ahead and reformat my main C partition install XP and still access the 1.2 GB win 98 partition using the bootmagic rescue disk?

    Thanks for any advice
    Paul

    technically you should have no need for bootmagic, once you install XP you can set it up to dual boot to 98 without any of that crap :)
