Dual boot XP/Win98 on two different drives??

Is it possible to set up a dual boot with Win XP pro on one drive and Win 98 on another?

I currently have a dual boot on my 120Gb HD and a 40Gb as a slave. I would like to have Xp and my data partition on the 120 and Win98 on the 40gb, but have the choice at bootup to go into either OS

yes, you can do that....just install 98 first, and then install XP on your other drive. XP setup will take care of the bootloader.

if you want 98 to be able to access your data, be sure that the XP partition is FAT32 instead of NTFS.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
