Dual Booting

I'm heading into unknown territory ( for me) with dual booting.
I have win98 plus applications on C drive and keep data on D drive. I plan to add a third one for video editing.
This one would have to use NTFS file system to run the video ok which means XP (or Linux?).
I can partition drive C to hold XP(Linux?)in addition to keeping the existing programmes in their present section.
I take it I would have to load the applications relevant to each O/S in their partition or is there another way to handle that ?
Also where an application is common to both O/S (eg Photoshop v8 is for XP only and I have files saved under v7) would I be able to continue saving and using from my drive D (FAT 32) with an application designed for NTFS?
Finally, is there a good publication or website where all this is spelt out? I have looked but not found one yet.

whole package cost less £30 from Amazon.

NOTHING can compare for the ease of use in you want to multiboot.

Two more point is that although you can see a fat32 partition from a NTFS partition, you cannot see a NTFS from a Fat32 partition.

the package was produced by Powerquest.

Norton (Symatac) likes so much and bought the Company.

depend on OS, not partition
