Hi, i currently have 5 hard drives from C Drive to G Drive. I splite the two hard drives to form 2 OS. One of the is 98 and the other one is Windows XP Service Pack 2. The XP side is currently on E:\ drive. Is there any where in which to switch the name to C:\ drive? Thanks

Think you should check out some dual booting info websites. For a few links just type <dual booting> into the google search engine.

You must hide both of the o/s partitions using a program like "partition Magic".... Then format winxp and re-install it on the same partition (remembering that the partition MUST be "active" and not "hidden" for windows to be installed/drive to be formated....

Now hide that partition once windows is installed... Then install a program called "bootmagic" so that you can select (manage) what operating system you want to boot to (this program comes with "partition magic")

NOTE: if you do this, then you wont be able to see or modify the win98 partition while in winxp and voice aversa!!!!
