Help with dual boot (XP Pro/2K)?



I will be re-formatting, so that i can have win 2000 and xp pro dual boot.

How can I set it up, so that both O/S share the same program files? Is there a way to do this? I dont want ot have to install programs for both O/S, using 2 times the disk space.

Any suggestions or help would be great

I have been dual and tri-booting for a number of years to date and there is no easy way to share programmes. If you're handy with the registry and are prepared for a little bit of work then you could install your progs into one OS then copy the relevent registry entries / .ini files across. This will work with most apps, BUT NOT ALL, some are very fussy.
I've come to the conclusion that it's just not worth the hassle!!

Got to agree with Gothic. Some I share, but most I just put in the operating system that I would use the program in the most. If I need it in both, it goes in both.

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
