You will need to use a program like partition magic to create a new partition on your hard drive and install it to that newly created partition.

you have to first install win98 and then install xp on the system.. the visa versa would not work...!
;) Don\'t misunderstand its a TOOL which is required to fix up the computer...;)

no, you don't need to create another partition for it, just as long as they can both read the drive; make sure it's on FAT32.
install 98 to say C:\Win98 and XP to something else
