win98 dual boot problem.

hello experts,
i was having windows98 and windows xp on my machine. due to some problem i had reinstall windows98. but now at boot time it does not ask me the option to start from windows 98 or from windows xp and simply starts from windows 98.
i think there is some problem related with MBR. how do i solve it.
will i have to run the setup of windows xp also ?

Probably. Win98 is pre multi-boot systems so doesn't play nicely with other OS's and simply re-writes the boot sector to suit itself.

Hello expets,
i tried to solve this problem after reading some article.  
which suggested some changes in boot.ini BUT it was very strange that i could not find boot.ini file in my c: drive from where windows 98 is running.
where is boot.ini ?
