Of course.

The best way to do it is to have two hard disks or logical drives.  Then install Win98 first.  Then install Win2K, but do not do an upgrade - install it to the second partition.  Win2K will install it's own boot loader and this will give you the option of booting to 98 or 2000.  Just don't ever convert the C: drive to NTFS or Win98 won't boot anymore.

Thanks for the advice leew -  So I assume it would be ok to divide my hard disk into two partitions C: and D:   then install W98 on C: and then W2K on D:. With C$ formated as FAT32 and D: installed as NTFS5. Being aware of course that when booted as W98 I wont be able to access D:.
