Hope this is the Right section
Doing a MultiBoot setup here, have XP Pro on the primary C:\ and allocated another Partition formatted to FAT32 for Win98.
How do U install Win98 using the Win98 Bootup Floppy Disk, to specify the Partition that I have allocated for Win98?

It has been sooooooooo ... long since I install Win98 , am pretty much sure that it install to Default C:\ obviously.
When I tried to install Win98 to another directory , when I was given an option during Installation I get an error SU 0343 >>> Cannot istall into the specify directory. Plese help
,thx

You need to install Windows 98 first into its own partition and then install XP into another partition (which would be the rest of the space not used up by 98). XP will then sort the dual-boot menu out.

The problem you have with Windows 95, 98 and ME is that they are not designed to dual-boot with, well, anything else really. They insist on being the only operating system on the drive and complain if you try to do otherwise.

Heard there is a way around it, if U have XP already install. Am looking for that way., heard that a Boot Manager like Bootmagic and Acronis OS selector can be employed to do just that. So far I am Not having much luck using Both of them.
I know M$crosoft recommend that , installing Win98 first. but that means I have to dismantle XP, if I am going to have both OS on the same Disk with a different Partition
