Dual Boot 98/XP

Hi All

I have set my computer to dual boot with 98SE and XP Pro, From 98 the computer looks like it did before XP was installed, My problem is that when XP was installed it put windows on to "H" and i can also see the 98 "C" drive, How do i remove the access to the win 98 "C" drive and change the XP drive to "C" drive

Many thanks in advance

changing drive letters about can lead to problems if your unlucky.why do you not want to be able to access the win 98 files from xp it does have advantages at times? if you want xp on the c drive you need to move 98 somewhere else.you maybe better of reinstalling the whole lot but remember you need 98 on first for dual boot unless you intend to use boot magic or something similar.darren

I run a dual boot system not had a problem did a full format and created a dual partition put Windows
ME in first followed in my case by XP Home and kept the file system to Fat32 in my view don't change it to NTFS or you will have problems.
