I would like to know whether Windows 2000 can manage a dual boot modality when installed as a first OS. I already have Win2000 Pro on my pc and want to add Windows 98.
Thanks.

Yes this can be done.

First make a Win2000 boot disk (if you have not already). Then install Win98 on a different partition then Win2000.

Use your boot disk to boot into Win2000 once this is done, and then go to Control Panel, System. Click on the Advanced Tab and go to Startup And Recovery.

At the top, you should see Default Operating System. Just change it to the one you want to boot up into normally.

That should be all you need.

If you have another logical drive (partition) in your hard disk, you can have another O/S even after you installed Win2k.
