Help with partitioning the disk to prepare for dual operating systems!

I have never used win 2000 OR ever set up a system to handle dual operating systems. Questions:
1) I notice the win 2000 (BOOT DISKS) do not allow you to get into DOS for the purpose of running FDISK to prepare the disk - HOW DOES ONE DO THIS IN WIN 2000??? I want 2 partitions to handle dual operating systems.
2) What is the proceedure to actually get two operating systems on the drive???

Please hurry with answer - Thanks!

okay very simple first preoare your self a bootdisk from www.bootdisk.com. After doing so boot from your floppy.

Now using the fdisk program in your bootdisk. Define the partiton size you want. THe minimum level is 2 one for win200 and one for the other os. For your infor win2000 uses ntfs5 and it differs from the fat32 thatwin98 or me using.

Now before installing win2000, instal the other os first. This is becasue win2000 is define for mulitple os and it has an osloader to chooce which os to boot from .So if you have win me or win 98 install that first. But before the installation you need tyo format the partitio you have allocated for win 98. Just from your bootdisk and type format c:

Now after succesfully install win98, proceed with win 200 installation. Boot from the cd-rom. During the installation process , you can have the option to format te partition you have allocated for win2000 to ntfs5. It is just easy as that
