Multiboot/bootmanagers

I have one harddrive where I want to put a double install of win98 and a win2000 on.

I've partitioned the drive in three parts with PartitionMagic 5.

I've installed Win98 on the first (C) partition, the second (d) partition and win2000 on the third (e) partition.

The bootmanager supplied with win2000 only lets me choose between the second win98(D) and win2000(E).

How can I alter the boot.ini(win2k) or file/bootsystem to be able to select one of the three partitions to boot from?

Or has anybody got an other solution?(besides bootmagic... too slow...)

TNX, Harold.

You could try manually altering the boot.ini.
Copy the lines where win98 is mentioned and put it first, so you have 2 win98 and 1 win2000.
Change partition(2) in the first line with win98, to partition(1).
See if it works, and if not, delete the line you changed. You should then look for a product called Ranish Partition (something), which is free and can do bootmanaging.
Hope this helps
