I am thinking of building a new system and was wanting any info on running 2 os.
Dual boot ? NT4 and 98 I presume...
My 1st advices would be:
- Install 98 first
- install NT from 98, it will dual-boot your PC automatically.
- separate the 2 OS: 1 partition for 98, 1 for NT
- put the 98 on the 1st partition using FAT16 (NOT FAT32)
- NT on the 2nd partition, using NTFS
- orgagnise the rest of your HD depending on your needs...
I guess it could depend on what OS's you want to dual boot. If you want to dual linux and win98 (what I do..and also win2k beta), then install 98 first and then most linux flavours--new ones at least) come with a version of partition magic or another util that will let you dual boot. I knwo for a fact that Mandrake 6.0 and Caldera Openlinux 2.2 have these utils. Very nice and easy to use. And if you are thinking linux then caldera's is probably the easist to install for a linux newbie [img]/forum/wink.gif[/img]
I boot DOS 6.22, Win98 and NT. I set up my system as follows:
DOS Boot partition formatted FAT16
- this is where boot data for all 3 os's resides
NT partition formatted NTFS
98 partition formatter FAT32
I installed DOS first, then NT, then 98. The only thing critical to the order of install is how you boot partition is set up. I used DOS for that because everything else can use it without modification. This is also the only partition on my system that is common to all 3 os's. Supposedly the newer versions of Windows can read FAT32.
Hope this helps.
