Dual boot problem

Hi, this is it. I have a machine with a dual boot between Win98SE and WinXP and I need to, as usual ;), reinstall Win98SE. The problem is that if I reinstall Win98SE it will overwrite the boot sector and I won´t be able to access WinXP anymore. What would u do? What if I enable the Anti-Virus Trend Chip Away (or something like that) on the bios to avoid the boot sector overwrite? Will this work??
All ideas are appreciated.

  1. Are you running one or two partitions? And what file systems? FAT32 or NTFS?

    Arguing on the internet is like running in the Special Olympics.
  2. 10 GB Disk.
    1st partition Fat32 Win98
    2nd partition NTFS WinXP

    That´s it.
  3. In win xp, right click my computer and go to properties, then click on advanced tab, go to startup & recovery and edit the boot.ini. In notepad, copy and paste your boot.ini file to a safe place reinstall win 98 and then replace your boot.ini file in win98 with the dual boot ini that you saved. This worked for me, and i have the same type setup. Hope this helps you..JW
