    To get Windows 98 on the second partition of my XP system?

    XP comes standard with the system, so i want 98 as the second OS for gaming.

    I already have 2 partitions.

    Even i know more than that. There is a program called partition magic that can do it. Im wondering if theres any other way that doesnt require another piece of software.

    u can partition magic it, but thats russian roulette. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt (never has for me...) just scandisk/defrag b4 u do it.

    oh, ive had problems installed win98 second cause it wants to write to ur MBR, and if ur XP is NTFS its gonna bitch and complain.

    My XP is NTFS. Does 98 not support NTFS?
