Dual Boot w/win3.x & win98

I would like to install windows 3.11 or 3.1 whatever one works and have a dual boot option, with my current windows98 SE.  I guess System Commander would allow me to dual boot.  However, were would I get a copy of the win 3.x os system.  I would like to work w/the older true Dos system for studies.  Also, are there any pitfalls on installing win 3.x w/my win98?

Not that I see.  Just create a FAT-16 partition, load on SC and then load on Windows 3.1 onto that partition.  Look on e-bay for Windows 3.1, like this one:

Selling for $10, not bad.

There is a BIG pitfall.  In order to dual-boot you have to use FAT-16 not FAT-32.  THis will limit your partition size and cluster size, making very inefficient use of a large hard driver.  I suggest that you partition the drive into a small C drive for Win 3.1 and a large D drive for Win98, so you can use FAT32 on the D drive.
