triple boot install order



im setting up a triple boot with 98SE/2K/XP for a newbie friend of mine and i just wanted to confirm the order that I should install the thre OS's. Is 98 then 2K then xp ok? (98 on C, 2K on D and xp on E) I know 98 should be installed first, but does the order of 2k and xp matter?


Theoretically no, but I would go oldest to newest just to be safe, because XP will recognize 2k, but 2k will not recognize XP.
yes, do 98 first since it has no multiple-boot provisions.

Also remember that 98 wont see NTFS partitions, so if you want to share data between them you'll have to store the data on either Win98's root drive or a seperate FAT32 partition (considering, of course, that you choose to convert the 2K and XP targets too NTFS).
