    OT: Dual booting 98 and W2K

    Ok from what I read at tweak 3d, you basically install win98 on the first partition, pop in the win2k cd, install that on the second partition, then install all your apps and make sure you have the drivers for both OS's. Beyond creating the actual dual boot though, how exactly does it work? Does the computer essentially boot into 2000 and then you have the option to switch, or it switches when you play games, etc.? Just wondering exactly what goes on in a dual boot. I hear Win2k is really nice, but I'm a gamer as well, so I'd like to use both 2k and 98 if possible...Thanks guys!

    Actually, you just pop in which ever boot disk you feel like using at the time. At least, I think that's how it works...

    So pretty much I'd use W2k for normal stuff like business apps, and normal internet usage, and then have to reset the comp to play games? Ick...

    well haze, if your computer is somewhat up to date it won't be a problem at all. I dual boot between win2k and 98se and I'm loving it. I use win2k for day to day cruising, office apps and SETI, and when I want to play some quake, UT or Q3 I just reboot into win98. that's the only time I have to wait for it to reboot because when I'm done playing I just reboot and 2k comes up automatically...and loads 2 instances of SETI

    Running a k62-400 at 504 in my box right now, but just last night I ordered a celermine 566, BF6, and Abit Slotket...heehee, should be plenty up to date. So how are you guys liking W2k, it worth it?

    Hey

    Well i fixed the prob in my Win2K it works now thank God! now the Dual boot is working perfectly! It is actually one of the nicest setup i have had. i use dual boot becuase i have a BP6 and run Win2K becuase of the dual CPUs it runs some games and all of the apps it is worth it my man.
