Transition from Win98 to XP

At the moment I have two hard disks running under win 98. The Main disk, I intend to reformat and install XP on. Will the second hard drive work fine under XP or will it not work due to it being the wrong file structure for XP?

Don't worry, as long the second drive is the FAT formats or the NTFS format it will work fine with Windows xp.

Thanks for the reply. The second drive is in FAT format so hopefully there shouldn't be a problem.

Pop the XP CD in and you will be prompted to instal the OS as a second OS and XP will set up a file that runs on Start up and ask which OS you want. Bog standard with XP.
