    I'm trying to run W98SE and WXP. each from a different hard drive. I have W98se (slave) and Wxp (Master) but the computer always boots into Wxp. I'm not getting to choose which one to start up with. How can I get it done?

    Winxp and Win98 do not like to dual boot, but very simply the easiest option is to use 3rd part software like Bootmagic, which will happily do it for you :)

    http://oemsoftware.ws/index.php?target=desc&progid=548 to buy it, theres trial versions available somewhere too

    98 has to be on the Master drive. XP can be on the Slave.
