Is it possible to have two operating systems on one computer windows 98 and
windows xp
to be able to bootup in one and at another time to boot up in the other
I want to do this as I have a programme that will not operate properly in
winxp but works well in 98

how do I set this up thanks
Peter

there is a way to run the program in Windows XP. Go to the executable of the
program, right click, then click properties. Next click the Compatibility
tab. Where it says Compatibility Mode, check Run this program in
compatibility mode for: then in the drop down list choose Windows 98 /
Windows ME.
