XP makes the change (see answer # 3), you don't have to change 98.

With 98 you would either need to use 3rd party boot software and disable XPs boot loader or copy ntldr , ntdetect.com & boot.ini from xp to 98 and edit the boot.ini file to change the default OS. Then make a batch file to get it all to load up first. (if you decide to do this I can give you the info in more detail if you want)
Personaly I use a 3 party boot manager and install all my OS on different primary partitions much easier to fix if one OS fails.

Hi! If you can erase the time that you have to make your choice for your dual boot, to do this you have to edit the " Boot.ini " files, before doing this you most see all your hiding files, then open the file that i mantion and replace the number by-1, save and exit; now the system will wate for you!
