  1. I had a dual boot windows, one is XP and win 2003 ( for study purpose) now I want to install win98 but there seem to be a real problem, and I can't figure out how...


    I had 4 Partitions

    3 Primary Partitions all NTFS(One for XP, Win2003 and Backup)

    1 Local Drive (FAT32)


    How about am I going to install win98, I had stuff up big time on my other Drive which lead to erase everythings on it...

    Win 98 will not read NTFS, only FAT32.

    You haven't made it clear if you want to duel boot Win98 with XP if so you have to install win98 first then XP,Win98 doesn't know what Xp is so it wont allow a duel boot with it, Xp does know what win 98 is so you can set up a duel boot, if that makes sense to you, also win98 has to be on a FAt32 partition it doesn't work with NTFS.
