It depends on what programs you want to load in each OS. If it's not a whole lot of programs, make two 10gig partitions (C & D) and a third for storage(E). Remember, WinME can't 'see' the NT File System (NTFS), so make sure you format everything in Fat32 if you want ME to have access to the XP partition.

XP will install a boot-loader that you can choose which OS to boot to (at start-up).

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
