replacing xp with win 98 with slight disadvantages

  1. i have read the forum on rebooting on a win 98 boot disk and the reformatting etc, but my computer is at a slight disadvantage. i built it without a floppy drive. i would like to reinstall everything so that i can have win 98 and win xp at the same time with a dual boot. so any suggestions?

    thanks

    With W98, it's highly recommendable to put a floppy-drive in.
    A W98 bootfloppy has saved many people's sanity!
