NO m8, you cant install 98 on the same partition as XP.

Do you need dual boot or do you just want 98?

If you upgraded 98 to XP then you can revert back to 98 by uninstalling XP in add/remove programs.

If you want dual boot, then you will need to partition the hard drive and use a boot manager prog.
(Unless you install 98 first)

Indy's right, you either have to install 98 first for dual boot or parition your hard drive to install it...

hi jeswin
probably the easiest way for you to get to the campatabliity mode is to go t o the help and support (its in the control panel) and type compatability into the box just follow the links from there.incidently if you upgraded to xp from 2000 then you wont be able to boot from 2000 the only way to dual boot is to have xp on a separate partition and then what darkseige was saying will work:D
