Dual Booting same OS on one drive.

  trevpearson 09:52 20 Jun 2004

I am a Printer Technician, as such I have over 70 different drivers for all makes of printers on my HD. The newer HP drivers are wreaking havoc with some EPSON drivers.

Is it possible to be able to dual boot my OS (98) So that HP are in one partition and EPSON in another to prevent LPT1 being grabbed by HP and corrupting EPSON?

Can fit a 2nd HD, if need be.

Glad of any idea's/suggestions.

I use Powerquest Partition Magic and Drive Image.
With these it is very easy to make another partition and copy your operating system to it.
Then you can delete the print drivers not required from each OS.
There is a boot program with Partition Magic so that at bootup you can choose the system you want.
