    Ok

    Im thinking of partitionng my hard drive and installin 98se on the 2nd patition

    Im wondering

    This partition will be ntfs

    Will 98se work on this partition?

    Also

    Can I acess my documents on the other partition that is windows xp pro and vice versa?

    I want to use 98se because some old games donít work on windows XP

    Im wondering if I could still use my old files too.
    I donít only want to have 98se because I like the way xp looks

    Well if you do you should use Acrions as its been flawlees for me and stay away Partition Magic as it was a fkin pain for me. I however think that if these are basics games you may want to consider using a Virtual Machine perhaps so that rebooting wont be needed...

    edit: i'm rephrasing my answer

    win98se does not support ntfs, only fat32
    so, if ur winxp is using ntfs, ur win98 will not be able to see it (fat32 can't see ntfs)
    however, ur winxp will be able to see win98 bcos ntfs can see fat32.
