Hi,

Partition any way you like as far as size goes, but to boot those systems
the partition used to house the boot files (known in WinXP as the system
partition, but commonly referred to as the boot partition) must use the
FAT32 file system in order to boot Win98/ME. Also keep in mind that WinXP's
drive mangement utility can only work with FAT32 partitions up to 32GB. It
will use larger ones, but they must be created and formatted with a
different partitioning tool. The partition that actually houses the WinXP
system folders may be NTFS, but you will not be able to read that partition
from the Win98/ME systems. Any partition that houses information that is to
be shared amongst the operating systems must also be in FAT32, as Win98/ME
cannot read an NTFS partition on a local system (at least not without third
party help).

How you partition is another story. If starting from scratch, you can do
this with fdisk and the WinXP partitioning faculty. If some of the systems
are already installed, or you want to shrink/change/add partitions to an
existing drive with no free space available you will have to use a third
party partitioning utility. Please post back with what you currently have
for proper guidance.
