What is the pecking order here? my son insists that NT comes before Windows 98. Is this true?
I want to install Windows NT on my pc to compare to other operating systems I have used.
We are presently using Windows 98 SE.
I have all my files backed up and I have the installation diks to reinstall all my drivers. The NT setup came with all the floppys needed for installation. What can I expect when I reformatt the hard drive and prepare for install will I need to repartion the hard drive? I did this once before but it was guess work it worked but I now have no idea how I did it but I believe fdisk was involved.
Thanks.

Welcome to TSG, Janedoh,

Windows 98 should be on the Primary Partition and NT on a second partition

Have a read of M$KB 243896 to give you an idea of what to expect.

Remember that your WIN 98 won't see the NTFS partition, so you MAY need to place certain files on both partitions

95,98, ME, NT, 2000, XP is the pecking order but not essential if you know what you are doing with the boot.ini
