just to toss it out there.. but one thing I do..
I have very few times I need to go into win98 or win2k
but there are times
so I loaded up XP on my system.. installed VMware.. then created win98 and win2k installs from within vmware.. that way whenever I need to go in and try something, its there.. without having to get out of XP..
of course you need a nice chunk of ram to do this, and a decent processor.. but if you have those.. it really does make it easy to access the older operating systems
its especially good for those of us who still have to support win95 machines, but never have one around.. so when we have to walk them through step by step instructions for something minor, its less likely we will forget to tell them the obvious stuff
I suggested this to quite a few of my friends when they switched to win2k.. because they needed win98 for some games.. and they would load up 98 through vmware and play the games without any problem
