Default Dual OS Question

I'm contemplating running XP and 98 on the same system becuase I need 98 for a couple of old games, but I've heard that this can cause kernal issues and some other problems. Do you guys think the dual OS idea is good or bad? Thanks for the help!

Athlon XP 1800

Dual OS is a great idea. They are pretty easy to setup and stay stable as long as you keep the installs separate. Use two drives and you should have no problems. This thing is pretty cool too as it allows for both Drives being completely separate from the other system...

Not only dual OS. I tried to use win98, XP, Red Hat 9 on my system and they have been living very well with each others.
