  1. Running Win xp pro in raid 0; I have several programs (and an Orb drive) I would rather (need) run under win 98se..Is there any way to load 98se on an external usb hard drive (or flash drive for that matter) and boot to win 98? Or does anyone know of a different solution that would accomplish the same thing? Thanx for any ideas..Ricc

    Cool little program (free download) called PART. basically its an easy Partition tool that allows up to 4 primary partitions. Another free download tool you will need to run with this is XOSL. Basically a GUI interface upon start-up that allows you to choose which OS you would like to boot into.

    So basically partition your HDD and install 98se on one.

    Thats what I would do ....
