? FAT32 and XP on same drive, different partition

Post by Mark » Sat, 18 Dec 2004 16:16:14


I have Win98 Chinese version and I also have Win XP on another
partition and I was thinking of getting another hard drive as my
existing drive sounds like it's getting bad. Can Win98 FAT32 co-exist
with XP on the same drive? I would like to have Win98 and XP on
separate partitions but have a couple of partitions set aside as NTFS.

Yes. This PC has one HD with NTFS, FAT32, and FAT16 parts. XP can
read and write to all those parts.

Note that W9x cannot recognize NTFS parts. So, any data you want to
share between XP and W9x must be in a FAT part.

I don't remember the procedures for setting up dual-boot; I haven't
done that lately.
