Partitioning a hard drive to boot two di

This is what you need to do:
1. Delete all old paritions
2. Create a 50% partition on primary and format it to FAT32, install Windows 98. Leave the other 50% unpartitioned.
3. After Windows 98 installed, use Windows 2000 to bootup your system.
4. Follow the setup instruction, install W2K into the remaining 50% of partitons. Select W2K during the first reboot coz it need to finish up the setup.
5. After installation done, you will see a dual-boot menu during system startup.
