installing Win98 *after* XP

Hello,

I know it's simple enough to set up a 98/XP dual boot by installing XP after 98, but if I were to install 98 after having installed XP, I run the risk of losing access to XP, correct?

Right now, I have only XP on C:. I came across an old 4 GB (say I call it S) onto which I want to install 98*. Is it just a matter of backing up the boot.ini on C:, restoring it if 98 overwrites it (even though 98 is going on S), then adding 98 to XP's boot menu?

Thanks!

* PS: in your opinion, which is better to run older games, 98 or ME? Some of my games just don't work in XP so I want to run a light installation of either 98 or ME.
