The easiest way would be to use Partition Magic by Power Quest. This tool will take all the headaches out of configuring a dual boot machine. There are other ways of doing it but by far this is the easiest.

Well the answer is good but why spend the money to buy Partition Magic when all you need is a boot manager and fdisk, Just make sure you load Lynx then install the boot manager set it up shut down, load the Win98 boot disk. Start the install of 98,whenit asks to install 98 to C: or Other select other and let it go. When all this is done go back to Lynx and boot up, if the boot manger doesnt work properly dont worry get the options up once everything has loaded and set up again. then you are away. Thisis how i set up NT and 98, works just fine

The recommended method is to use "Disk Druid" it is simple and user friendly. It comes bundled with Linux-Mandrake along with fdisk. Linux-Mandrake has been rated the #1 distribution of linux and can be had on CD for around $40. It also comes with aprogram called Lnx4win.exe that will allow you to boot Win98 and have a desk top icon to boot into Linux. For more info go to

I use little program called 'fips' which is added to RedHat linux distribution. It is free, it can use FAT32 partitions, at can resize existing partitions.

the partition magic suggestion is about the best and good news is powerquest has just released a package called "boot magic" which i'm sure will solve your problems. you can get this software from www.powerquest.com. you will have to fill in some forms but i guarantee you, it's worth it.
