Ok here's My situation, I currently have a Pressario with XP on it, But I want to be able to play old games, such as dos games and such. So I was wandering is it possible to set my computer up. so that I can partition the drive and on one part have the XP and the other have something like Win98. and be able to boot wich one I want, when ever I start the computer up? (And I tried DOS emulators but they didn't work for the games I wanted to play).

Thanks for any help.

You want to Dual Boot. yes you can however the older O/S needs to be installed first.
Why not just try installing the DOS games on XP first? I was pleasantly surprised to find 3 of my favorites ran fine. And one hung during install, bt after I endtasked it, still worked properly.

trust me I wouldn't be asking this if they did work(didn't mean to insult you there) is installing win98 first possible with a (pre built) compaq? it came with a partion, that had the xp disc on it.
