    I've heard that if you want to dual boot with xp and 98se that you have to put 98se on first.. unfortunately i've already had xp installed for quite some time and don't really feel like formatting it and starting over just to put 98se on...

    i do have a partition open... and was wondering if there was any way that i could dual boot but install 98se without having to first get rid of xp...

    thanks for the tips

    you don't have t oinstall 98 first, but you do have to put it on the primary partion (c:)
    it is possiable to put XP on first, then install 98 on the C: than reinsert the xp cd on boot and in setup tell it to do a repair on you existing XP install, that way it will do all the multi-boot stuff for you.
