I have windows 95 installed on my c: drive, and installed windows 98 on my e: drive (same drive but partitioned). Now I can only boot win98! Is there any way to choose wich operating system to boot? Or how can I get back to my win 95? I can discard my win 98 install.

To do a dual boot with win95 and win98 you need a program like system commander or partition magic, Because of how "propritary" (is that spelled right?:)) windows is it doesn't like dual booting unless you have a program in the MBR to manage the boot files.

You can remove the win98 install but you are going to have to Sys the c: drive.  you will also have to replace the IO.sys,msdos.sys, files.  It would be easyist to reinstall win95 onto c: (without removing anything) that should replace all of the files you need.
