Outlook 98 on a dual-boot system

I recently added NT 4.0 to my 98 system.  Dual booting, of course.  I have installed NT on an NTFS partition and 98 is on a FAT(16) partition.  I have been using Outlook 98 for quite some time and have built up quite an archive of messages.  Is there a way for me to install Outlook 98 under NT so that it accesses the same data files and configuration as my 98 copy?  Ideally, I would like any mail downloaded during an  NT session to be available during a 98 session and vice-versa.
  
Any suggestions?

Just install Outlook 98 and point the Outlook program to the common PST file.  This will allow you to view the messages fom Outlook (98).

OK.  Sounds good.  Now...  <puzzled> How do I *do* that?

Just install Outlook on the NT side.  Then choose File Open Folder (*.PST) and locate the PST file (probably in C:\Windows\).

OK.  At least I can view my old contacts list and mail.  However, it also lists in the same window the "Personal Folder" that was automagikally generated upon installation of Outlook 98.  Unfortunately, this is the folder to which all mail is delivered and whose addressbook pops up as the default.

If I try to delete or close this personal folder, it tells me I cannot close the folder containing my contact list, calendar, and POP mailbox.  I want the folder I opened as you described to be the default.

Any suggestions?
