Are there ANY known problems with dual-boot systems? I have been told files being exchanged with two different O/S's can cause problsms.

I've been multi-booting now for years with no problems. Which systems are you thinking of booting?

I already dual-boot XP Pro and ME. I have had problems but I don't know if its related to dual-booting but I have been told that there is a a good chance that is the cause.

I Dual boot ME and XP and have had no problems.
Do not share programs, sharing files is OK.

Thanks to both of you for that. The main problem that I get is that I often get a message saying "out of memory" when I may only have one or two prgrmme4s running. I have 258Mb of RAM. I think that is enough to cope with what I have running!
