Friends:I have two hard drives installed. One has Windows XP Pro installed and running OK. The other has Windows 98 previously installed. I would like to set up a dual boot system to give me a choice at start-up which from system I need to boot from. Is there a simple way I can do this from an already-running Windows XP installation rather than going through the whole Windows XP installation again? Thanks for any help.

I have not tried this, as the way to normally accomplish what you want is to install 9x then XP, but you could modify the boot.ini file on the XP drive and add an entry for the 9x installation. Google boot.ini and you will find plenty of tips.

crash override: I found a really elegant software called GAG from SourceForge which gives a graphical choice on start-up of up to 9 operating systems. It can be booted from a floppy too, so you can bypass the process if needs to. Many thanks for your help. Appreciate. Cheers!!!
