Well I am trying a Tri Boot between:
Windows XP Home Edition
Windows XP Pro Edition
and
Windows 98

The reason for this is because I am a Software developer whom (Sad to say) does all of his beta testing by himself.

My Problem is that I Cannot Install 98 (I have Pro and Home on)

My Layout is:
C:\ Is Windows XP Home
D:\ is Windows XP Pro
And
G:\ SHOULD BE 98
But Windows 98 SE OEM (The CD)
Automaticaly wants to install on C:\

This is getting weird because I have no say in it. It automaticaly says "There are Files on this drive would you like to format it" (Or something relitivly close to that) And I click no, then it says "windows will now restart your computer, press enter to continue" I press enter and I get back into 98 setup only to recieve the message "Please instert the Windows 98 Disk into A:\ Or Inster the Windows 98 CD-ROM" (I dont have a floppy disk drive) So I press return and it Briefly shows a message saying Formating C:\ 0& and then I get that same message. Do you guys think I have to Format and Install 98 first and if so, does it even support coustom Partitioning?

you can also try to format one partition as fat32 with the xp cd (eject immediately when done formatting) then try installing 98
