    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
