Hi guys and gals, I was wondering if it was possible to install windows 98se on a small partition and xp pro on the remainder of a 15 gb laptop hdd whilst both os being able to see each others files. The reason I ask is that i have an iomega zipcd 650 usb cd-rw drive which always goes beserk under xp. I have tried almost everything under the sun to get it to run smoothly but nothing works. 98se is the drives native os, however i prefer xp for my network. I have trawled the net for answers to my drive problems however it seems to be a common problem that iomega just arent bothered about, judging by the response some customers have had from them. Thanking all in anticipation.
Provided both particians are formatted as Fat 32. Each operating system will be able to see files on the other. Just don't expect programmes installed in one to work with the other. i.e. If you have MSWord installed in XP you will not be able to run it when 98 is in use. However if you have MSWord installed in both operating syatems then each will be able to see the others files.
The important thing is that Both discs must be formatted as Fat 32.
