You can't have FAT32 and NTFS, at least, and make your machine happy. FAT16 and NTFS will work. Separate partitions are a good idea. Most of the time that drivers don't work with NT is because you need to install AT LEAST Service Pack 3. My advice is to install Win98 to its own partition. Then, install NT4.0 in its separate partition. Apply SP3, or 4,5,6,6a, then install your drivers.

I don't know if this will work and you might have already tried it but I would create one FAT primary boot partition of about 200MB, one FAT32 partition for Win98 and leave space available for an NTFS partition. Format the two partitions, install Win98 putting the system files on the FAT32 partition. After Win98 is installed install NT4 creating and installing it on to a new NTFS partition. You cannot make any part of the OSs woek together. They won't no matter what kind of partition you put them on. The best you can do is enable them to dual boot. Also, avoid dual installing software. For example, if you try to install MS Office so it will work on both OSs it will work but with intermittent problems.

I would have to see exactly everything you are doing and monitor your systems indications to be of further assistance.

Hope this helps,

Al

hi, like Dukey said, you can't use FAT32 boot up with NTFS they are not compatible. If you want system multiple boot up and safe, happy then you should used the software named System Command. My system here, I installed win2000, Win98, Novell, NT and linux. Do you believe it. My email thom_dinh&hotmail.com

Simpler solution would be to get a couple sets of drive caddies. Drives are locked to use, and are swapable. Get separate drives for each O/S. The problem with sharing different O/S on same drive is one goes bad, it may affect the other as well.If you like, you can installed a fixed 2nd hard drive to share data between both Win 98 and NT (FAT16 of course .)
