Recent bought new PC because my old motherboard had stop working. I have got my old Hard drive in my new computer which is my primary slave with Win 98se still on it.

But my new hard drive has got Win XP which is on my Primary Master. Is there anyway I can dual boot into Win 98 because got couple programs that I would like to use that will not work under Windows XP.

Either edit the boot.ini file (not a good idea unless you know what you're doing)

Or, better, in XP go to ControlPanel -> System -> Advanced ->Startup and recovery -> Settings and then change the defualt operting system to Win 98.

This doesn't mean you always have to start in Win 98, the bootup givews you a choice, and with a bit of playing around you'll find how to modify the boot options to suit your preferences.

Can these apps not be run under compatability mode?

This should work:
Boot up off your recovery CD and then type "BOOTCFG /Rebuild" (without quote marks)
