I have a 60 Gb IBM 120GXP Hdd. At the moment I have it as one singel partition. (NTFS)

I wonder if there are any pros and cons (speed, compatability..etc) by partition it up in, let's say, two different units. (and make them FAT32). You know... that eternal question if FAT32 is more suitable for games and so.

And are there any drawbacks in dualboot with Windows Xp with any previous Windows version?

To create a multiple-boot system with Windows XP and MS-DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows Me:
Ensure that your hard disk is formatted with the correct file system.
Install the multiple operating systems into separate volumes, in the following order: MS-DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, and then Windows XP.
Do one of the following:
If you want a multiple-boot system with MS-DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows Me along with Windows XP, install MS-DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows Me, and then install Windows XP.
If you want a dual-boot system with only Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows Me, install Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows Me, and then install Windows XP.
Install each operating system according to the standard installation procedure

Any other probs pls write back!

Thanks!
So having each OS on a seperate partition there will not be any collisions (or limitations) between them?
