installing 98 on 2000 partition

  1. is that crazy talk or what?

    I have an 80gig drive separated into two partitions, both have win2000 installed on them... drive C: doesnt boot (and I couldnt figure out how to fix it) so I installed 2000 on E: (E is the one I want to keep running 2000). but I want to install 98 to run games because they crash in 2000.

    what I'd like to do is... copy the files on C: that I want to keep over to E:, and then format partition C: and install 98 on it.

    or... would it be possible to cut out a partition from the empty space on E: and have a third partition with 98 installed?

    What file system are you using? Windows 98 only supports FAT file systems, therefore if you are using NTFS, you will have to convert or format to FAT32 or FAT16 FS (which ever you prefer). I will post back when you tell me which FS you are using.
