general rules are to install the oldest o/s first on drive D: then win xp on drive c:.

dont know if installing the other way round will cause any probs, only way is to give it a go.

you would need to edit the boot.ini to enable the dual boot option (not sure of that, open to being proved wrong anyone.)

good luck anyway

Have deciced not to bother as it seams a lot of bother to put windows 98 on a second hd as i already have xp on drive c , all the imfo tells you to put 98 on the first drive and i do not want to reinstall xp again has i have just done it.
