Hey all....please help!

I am attempting to create a multi boot on my laptop.

I bought partition magic and performed the following steps:
-converted NTFS XP to a logical partition
-changed drive to F:
-created new primary partition with drive letter C:
-after a few tries....used fdisk to successfully format C:
-restarted computer with win98 cd in....starts to install but gets stopped when drivers and plug and play devices are trying to install.....then causes a fatal exception error!!

I expected many problems such as this...but I am stuck as far as where to go from here.

A little more information....the NTFS partition is about 18gig....the Fat32 partition is about 10gig....I only have a cdrewriteable drive...no floppy.

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks

Brian
