Dual boot

I need to dual boot between W98SE and XP Pro. I use XP 99% of the time but need 98SE to run my Agfa scanner as Agfa are not supporting it under XP. Our second PC has died and is not worth repairing so we are down to one.

Any recommendations ?

Thanks

you have to make two partition: 1 for xp and 1 for 98. But after you have installed 98 you will have to change your boot.ini otherwise you wont be able to boot to xp

Plus if yer HD partitions are already formated NTFS for XP then Win 98 will not be able to read any of it.

Are you that attached to the Afga Scanner??? Maybe invest in a new one? They are quite cheap these days...

Just a thought. :)

And that way you can take full advantage of XP when working with your images.

Thanks to all.

I can see problems, its going to get complicated and nothing will work. Its going to be a new scanner.

Thanks again
