I wonder if you ever pay attention to what you're doing; if you install a Linux Distribution, it's going to have a non-NTFS boot sector, and moving Windows' original boot sectors around is not guaranteed to work well.

If you pay attention to what you're doing, you should be installing Linux on a fresh disk using a good filesystem like ext3 or ext4 or Sun's filesystem. If you want to run WinXP rather than run applications (games, etc.) under WINE or a VM, you can use Disk Commander or such to boot to the old drive and mask the OS from each others' existence. Likewise you could install, run, etc. Fedora, Ubuntu, etc. from within a VM in WinXP; or install, run, etc. WinXP within a VM in a Linux. If you don't pay attention to what your install means for the system operation, you're going to get surprised.

yeah it should be okay, just get a linux cd like susie or ubunto and makesure you have another partition to run it on , however you can run it without installing it just playing it from a CD. I suggest you go to this link for more info:

New installation


Hi digggger,
Could please explain in more detail what you are attempting to do? Is it that you want to have a dual boot system? Meaning you wish to use the same hardware and be able to boot into the system of your choice at startup?

Dual boot


hi wtm78 this is nichu,
it is impossible to install win 98 after installing xp,if you want to install win98 you must remove the winxp and then first install win98 and later you can install winxp,
basically it is impossible to install a lower order software when xp is already installed,in your case it is the same
there will be no things like dual boot or anything ,after booting your system asks whether you want to work with win98 or winxp.
be cool.

take care
bye and have a nice day.

Where is Linux mbr file


There's nothing like the Linux MBR File. The option to boot to multiple operating systems is controlled by a software called as the "Boot-Loader".
Windows XP and Linux both have their versions of boot-loaders. The Bootloader that Windows XP uses is called the NTLDR, whereas Linux provides many bootloaders (prominent among them being "Grub" and "LILO").

>but Linux is shown in the manage option from the My Computer in Win XP 2.....
That is the control section of NTLDR. So from what I understand you shouldn't have a problem selecting the operating systems.

If you want the Linux bootloader taking control of the boot process, you can always install it.
All you need is a Linux CD and then run the setup for "Grub" or "LILO".

Information about installing Grub or LILO can be found easily on the internet.
