Ihave 98 on c and want to install Novell also as dual boot. I know that 98 on c will hold boot files for (wnnt) and (wnnt wkst)so the system will triple boot. Novell needs 100 primary boot but I also want 98 on it , with 98 it needs c for primary. How do I create 2 Primary boots 1 for 98 and 1 for Novell with Novell boot pointing to Novell operating sys on d. Do I need a boot manager or will it be easier to get a separate hard disk with a tray??? thanks...Scott

The Answer

If you want to set up a machine for Windows 98, NT and Novell this is probably the easiest way to do it.

First you'll need at least 2 partitions on your Hard Drive make one large enough hold Windows 98 and NT, and make the second one large enough for Novell.  The rest of the hard drive you can use for a NetWare partition.  Install Windows 98 first.  Next, install Novell to the second partition.  Last install Windows NT on the first partition with Windows 98.  After NT is installed it will give you the option to boot to NT, 98 or DOS (which is the Novell server). 

Just a reminder, NT wont install to a hard drive that has been formatted FAT32.  Use FAT16.  You could always put NT on its own partition as well.  So you would have 3 partition.
