I posted a question the other day about using the correct Boot.ini settings for setting up a multi boot with XP and Me. What I should have specified was that I have XP on my main drive and Me on the other(not a dual boot on the same drive). I just can't remember the right syntax to set it up.

It's not as simple as adding a Boot.ini file. The problem is that ME can only boot from the primary master C drive. The way it should be done, is to have ME bootable and then INSTALL XP. XP's setup will do all the work. But, I'm not saying it can't be done. Excellent instructions here:DualBoot
It makes a big difference whether XP is FAT or NTFS. Study it carefully before you start. Have ME and XP bootable install disks, just in case. Make sure they work. Back up all important data, first. Good luck.
