i want to dual boot cuz i cant game in xp
i want xp in C: and win98 in D:

i know how to do this but how do u make 98 install to D:?
i choose the install directory to be D:\windows but it still put program files and other dirs in C:\

i think you have to install 98 first on C: and XP on D:


Just like a 2K dual boot

I cant understand why people do dual boot XP as everything which runs on 98, ME and 2K runs on XP ....


What games you haveing problems with ?

not everything runs fine. all 3d games dont work, maybe u never heard of the deadly nvidia infinate loop bug

there has to be a way to put 98 on d:. in the setup.txt it says "if u plan on installin 98 on a diff drive..." but doesnt say how

So is your dilema redefining the partition size for each OS? Basically want the majority of the HDD space for XP?

If that's the case, it would be a hell of alot easier useing partitionMagic and redistributeing the free space from C:\ to D:\

If that's not the case could ya provide alittle more info as to why you would like Win98 on D:\ ther might be a better work around. From what I have heard it is not wise to have that set-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!
