Whats up overclockers,

I'm currently running xp,but I have 98e on an extra hdd.I'm thinking of going back to 98e for awhile,its been about 6mos.since
I've even seen 98e and I was wondering if the amount of problems in
doing this would be worth it?Meaning my system is set up for xp,will this be a pain or what?Thanx alot much appreciated.

Hi and welcome to the forums.

As long as you haven't done anything to the hd with 98se on it, you should be able to plug it in and boot off of it. You can also dual boot 98se and xp, but I don't know how you would set that up.

you will probably need to go into the bios to change which disk to be first in the boot sequence if you plan on leaving both dives in.
but you'll have to do this each time you want to change over to the other os.
