Default Dual Operating Systems

I just recently upgraded from win98se to win 2000. I was reluctant to change because I was so comfortable with 98, but I must admit that after using 2000 for a short time I like it a lot. The thing is that I have some games that will not run under 2000, so since I have to harddrives I was thinking of putting 98 on the slave drive. If I do this, is there any special procedure I would need to follow. Any tips, info or links would be appreciated. Especially from someone who has done it.

here is another way to do it:
you can get a software called VMWARE, which allow you to run a second OS from your Win2K desktop with out the need to close Win2K and reboot into Win98. VMWARE will allow you to open Win98 in a new active window while you still using Win2K just like if you are using any software in your computer. when you finish to use Win98, all you do is close the Win98 window and you be right back in your Win2K desktop. VMWARE also works with other versions of windows and linux.

don't know if you want to do this, but is just another option!
