why do you want to delete both and reinstall?
I run 98 and XP on the one disc and I run xp on FAT32 not NTFS
This way it does not matter which system I am in I can see all files.If you run 98 on fat 32 and XP on NTFS then you can't look up files you may have under
the other file system, so if you want to check something then you have to reboot and change over. Yes you must put 98 on first.
