Default Dumb XP Question

Okay, So I'm finally going to buy Windows XP. I'm going to make a dual boot system with Windows 98, already installed.
My Question: I want to partition my HD in half, preferably both in FAT32. One half will contain my existing files and Windows 98, and the other will be for XP and all of my new stuff. Do I partition the hard drive before I install XP or will it do this for me when I install it?

It will do it for you during install. Just follow the prompts.
