I operate a Dual Boot (Win 98 & Win NT 4.0) System. I want to access the same information in Outlook 98 under both platforms. The Data (*.pst & so one) seems to be saved and retreived only from the Folder in which the operating system is located. In my case this is
C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
and
D:\WINNT\Profiles\Administrator\Applicati...\Outlook
How can the data file share the same directory and therefor have the two different Operating Systems access the same Outlook file with all of the Calander, Task & Contacts information.

I asume you use a personal folder (.pst). Do you have one version with personal data and one without? If so, you start the version without personal data, select 'Tools, Services' from the Pulldown-menue, select 'personal folders' and klick 'remove'. Then you klick 'Add..', select 'Personal folder'. Now you should be able to select the personal folder from the other platform. That's all.
If you have personal data in both of your personal folders you can move it with the Export-Feature. You could also create a new personal folder in a directory that is independent of both OS's
