    I have win98 installed on C: & XP on D: dual boot.

    Now I want to re-install win98 on the c drive so what should I do to preserve the dual boot?

    I assume that after I reinstall win98 I will lose my dual boot screen so do I save a copy of my c:/boot.ini and then put that back after the re-install or is there more to it?

    thanks!

    Clean install win98 and then either do a repair install of XP or use the XP recovery console to do a fixmbr, fixboot and bootcfg
