Is it possible to dual boot from one hard disk? Win98SE will be installed on the first partition C: and WinXP on another. I've looked at other threads to do with dual booting, but 2 hard disks were used. Any know whether this will work? Thanks alot!

Yes you can do this and XP will sort it out for you. Have a look at the instruction book you get with your copy of XP, put the disk in and follow what it tells you.

Ensure your machine is well above the minimum specification for XP before attempting this otherwise it will perform very badly.

Best to install W98se first and then install XP from there which will automatically create a dual boot system.
