I know it's been discussed before but...

has anyone found a way to install a second OS e.g. W98 after XP.

Last I heard on this topic was that XP wouldn't let you if it had been installed 1st. As I only have a 'rescue' disk of XP so I didn't want to re format etc... in case the disk I had wasn't the full works...

I have PM7 and have had nae luck with PQboot, second OS partitions etc...

I do not believe you can go back to FAT32 with PM7 from NTFS. You can go from FAT32 to NTFS. You should not try to have a dual boot with NTFS and FAT32, as FAT32 cannot see an NTFS drive and when going from one to the other your drive letters will change among other problems. Lastly, if you manually alter your boot.ini in XP you can load XP after. I did this when I went to XP along with Windows 2000.
