Best way to dual boot with windows 98 and windows 2000

I have windows 98 installed now. I would like to dual boot between the two OS's. I dont mind formating my hard drive over again. I have a little experience with computers, but i would like to have a pretty good explaination so i don't screw it up. I had 2000 installed on my computer, but the wife didn't care for it. So I know everything is compatable for 2000.

athlon 800mhz
20 gig Hard drive
128 ram

Hi,

Please read the following article...

How to Dual-Boot Windows 2000 and Windows 95/98

In order to have both Windows 95/98 and Windows 2000 on your computer, it's best to have two partitions, or two hard drives, available. This allows you to have the operating systems in two separate environments where one system can't interfere with the other's critical system files. ....

Just do it like this: first install Win98, than Windows 2000. Windows 2000 will setup a boot manager and include Win98 automatically. Note that you must NOT convert the drive(s) which you want to access from Windows 98 to NTFS.
