    I have 2 hard drives in my computer, 1 with ME, one with WIN98. Is there any way that I can make it so that when the comuter starts up I can choose which version of Windows I want to run?

    Sure, you need a boot manager.

    Just be aware that if you ever need to reinstall either of your Operating Systems the Master Boot record will be overwritten. You would need to repair that to get your dual-boot back.

    I keep seeing the messgae that says to change the properties of the program to run in MS-DOS mode, but when I do, it still doesn't work....I downloaded both of the exe files, and tried the same thing. No luck...

    Any suggestions?
