i'm looking to reformat and partition my c: drive and install win 98 and win xp to create
a dual boot set up. in addition, i intend reinstalling all the programs that currently sit
on c: drive into their own partition on d: drive. in the other d: drive partition, i'll
put all of my data files.
i've got partition magic 7 plus magic boot to help me accomplish this task.
does my proposed set up which means using a 6.4gb disk solely to house the 2 operating
systems seem reasonable? i want to keep everything as clean and as stable as possible.
i've never done anything like this before and would welcome any words of wisdom (or just
plain old advice).

Run PM. Go Tasks--Install another operating system. So easy.
Take space from XP. Ready your 98 disket and cd-rom. Activate
98 partition by PM. Reboot, install 98. 6.4 GB is enough but I
would choose fastest drive to install system. Put your programs,
date to drive D. You can run most programs without actually
installing. This way OSes will be invisible to each other. Use
your boot program to choose OS at boot time. But can you stand 98
after using XP :)
