    When dual/multi-booting Windows OSes, you need to install from oldest to newest, I believe. There are ways to get XP to play nice and allow an older OS as a boot option, though, but I don't know any. Heh.

    No, 98 would overwrite xp boot sector and you'd have troube booting xp...

    Use boot magic. It comes with partition magic. It automatically hides the OS's from each other.
