If I understand it right -- you want to put a copy of your XP installation on to a second disk that already has Windows 98 on it -- right? yes you can do this but you'll need to buy some software which creates a compressed 'image' of one partition and saves it on another disk or partition. You then use the same application (from a boot disk it creates) to restore the image back to it's original state. The two main contenders for this job are 'Norton Ghost' and 'Acronis True Image'. I personally use Acronis True Image -- it's brilliant, easy to use and has never failed on me. http://www.acronis.c...g/sales/online/
keeping a complete backup of your windows installation doesn't get any easier than this.
