According to Microsoft you can dual boot between these two operating systems, however Windows 98 will not be able to see the NTFS partition. Also, Microsoft suggests that Win2K be the last OS installed on the computer.

So, if you really want to do it right...
Back up all data and reformat the disk. Install Win 98 first in a FAT32 partition and then install Win2K on a different FAT32 partition.

Partition as FAT32 if not already done. Install Win 98 on Boot 2000 and go to My Computer>Properties>Advanced>Startup and Recovery button. Modify boot settings as desired. Win98 will not access the NTFS partition. Win2000 will access the FAT32partition.
