  1. Hi ¡¡¡

    I hope someone could hepl me with this:
    I need windows 98 and windows xp running in the same computer.
    Now have installed win xp and 1GB RAM.

    Question:
    It´s possible to install win98 into another disk partition and run it without unplugging half of the RAM (w98 can´t handle 1GB RAM).
    How????

    Thanks.
