i want to use nt4 and 95 on my machine
i have formatted my harddrive and partitioned into two 2050 meg partitions.
i want nt on 1 partition and 95 an the other.
i put 95 on d: and nt on c:
when i installed Nt .. thats after 95 was on d: i was notified that Nt had to hide away the 95 partition.. after  Nt finished copying over the Nt files proir to the main installation,it said to reset the comp.. i did and when it came to boot up.. it was stuck on the "verify dmi pool data" screen..
it appears that Nt had hidden the 95 partition and therefore i lost all access to that partition.. unless i went into dos-mode i guess.... which i really am un qualified to do:)))
mi question therefore is.,.,..
what do i do??
do i put 95 on first on d: then install Nt.. or another way?
mant thanks :)))
btw.....the current state of mY harddrive is 2 partitions again...c: and d: both with 2050 megs...
i am unsure whether it is fat 16 or 32....i realise fat 32 and Nt don't work together.. how do i change the fat file structure?

Best solution is:
 - Start with a win95 bootdisks
 - run fdisk by answering NO to the first fdisk question you get and make one primary dos drive, and make it active.
 - then reboot again with the win95 bootdisks and format your "C:" drive.
 - install win95.
 - Create winnt bootdisks with win95.
 - Boot from nt-install-disks.
 - Select free unpartitioned space during installation. And make this NTFS.
 - Finish your nt installation.
 - Now you'll be able to see you C: and D: with NT.
 - NT will automaticly create an menu to choose wich os to be loaded.
