I think he was asking if he can dual boot ME and Xp, and the answer is yes.

Here is a link that will help youy do it: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/using/howto/gettingstarted/multiboot.asp

Micro is right about the NTFS thing though. If me is formated as FAT32, and XP is NTFS, you will have the issue that you are experiencing, and its going to be that way unless you format your XP drive and reinstall it on FAT32

hmm well ya the HD with WinMe is Fat32 and the one with xp is NTSF and by the way whats does "Fat32"stand for and whats the difference between that and NTSF, and is worth changing my NTFS to Fat32 to make this work? What are the pros and cons of Fat32 and NTSF

FAT is the abbreviation “File Allocation Table” which is the table where the system keeps basic information for each file. The numbers 16 (FAT 16/ FAT32) or 32 indicate the numbers of bits, which are used to address the storage units. These are named clusters. NTFS uses 64 bits
