But traditionally you want a boot menu, its just simpler.
PQ Bootmagic is my program of choice.

Well, I have 2 OS to and to manage my partitions and OSes I use Acronis Disk Director with OS Selector.
It's very useful software as it supports more then 100 OSes, could made one of OS hidden.
In one word just perfect for any act with HDD.

Not a good idea. It will not run very good . there will be problem here and there. But you realy want it done, there is the one order you must follow:
-From clean HD you will have to install 98 first.
-Get all the program you need to run on your 98installed.
and you are on your way. Doing this, every time you turn your computer on it will automatically give you the choices to which Opperating system you want in so many seconds before it boot up the XP. And the length of waiting time you can change in XP. This is microsoft build in option.
If you do it backward you will make a mess, I mean big mess.
Hope you know this already or at least it is not too late.
Hapy new year.

But when I build myself a dual-boot, i just set the OS's that are already installed as HIDDEN partitions, so that my install of the next OS like if there was none other on the computer...
Afterwards I come in, and install a bootloader. This way, no screw ups, and you can simply format out one of the OS's, with no damage or risk to the other OS's.
Happy new year's

After that, it's just a question of installing a bootloader, such as PQ Boot Magic.
As for actually making a partition hidden or not, PQ Partition Magic can do this.
There is also the GDISK dos utility from symantec, which has the ability to create, delete, hide, unhide, set active, and remove active for any partition.
