Windows 98 and Windows 2000 in a dual-boot configuration works well, if you configure the computer properly. Format the boot disk using FAT32 and install Windows 98 on it. Then, install Windows 2000 on the second disk. The basic rules are that you must install Windows 98 before installing Windows 2000, Windows 98 must be on the boot disk, and don?t install both operating systems on the same disk.
