How To Dual-boot 98, xp & Linux??

I've just bought a new comp and I want to install win98, xp and Linux onto the machine. I have already partitioned my harddisk.

I am new to dual-booting. So could anyone please explain the process of how to set these 3 OS up step-by-step?? Or even a webpage?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!~

  1. Here's some links:

    I don't know a whole lot about XP and its boot process (why does anyone use it?), but I think it's that same setup as Win2K. Anyway, between those 3 you should be able to get it figured out.

  2. 1. Didn't like your answer in the other forum?
    2. Sounds like a triple boot to me. Those *ARE* 3 different OS's.
    3. Using Lilo or Grub is a safe move. Using Nt's bootloader for 98, isn't.
    4. When I was triplebooting with Mandrake/Win2k/Winme, I used System Commander.
  3. Make sure linux is the last os you install since windows will overwrite your mbr. Grub or lilo will work, most prefer grub since its "prettier".
  4. lilo has a graphical interface now... :smile:
