I have just recently reformated my laptop to be able to run 2 operating systems.It now boots up and asks me which i would like to run.My c drive runs xp and operates fine,but my d drive runs 98 but wont recognise the graphics card,it defaults to run a standard vga and i cant change any settings ie:resolution or colours.xp recognises my card as s3gaphics chip and i was able to update to the new drivers to run xp.The laptop originally run on millenium and i upgraded when xp 1st came out and have never had any problems.So i tried installing millenium on d drive and because the grahics still defaulted tried to update the drivers but to no avail.the c drive with xp still works fine,help please
