2nd Partition

My hard drive is fat32 and has WinXP on one partition. Can I open another partition to load 98SE or must I re format and load 98 first please?

...if you use a program like Partition Magic.

With PM you can select an "Install another operating system" option and in conjunction with Boot Magic (which comes with it) when you boot up your PC, you will be give the option to boot into Windows XP or Windows 98SE (If that's what you want to install).

There may be another way on XP anyway but I don't use it so I couldn't tell you how.

PM however, is a great program and is very user friendly.

If you want to save money.

Do a reformat.

Create 2 partitions

Install 98 onto the first partition, then XP onto the next. XP will install a boot loader and then when you restart you'll be given the option to boot into 98 or XP
