Default Windows 98/ME Dualboot system

I have just installed these 2 operating systems onto seperate partitions on my hard drive. I followed a guide and it said I should be given a selection of operating systems to load when the PC boots up however I don't, it just loads straight into ME.

Any suggestions?

Hmm... that is wierd.

Not sure what Grub will do; but if 0x54 said it then it sounds like a good idea!

Ok, so you are unable to access 98 at all?

Maybe the installation screwed up, try deleteing the partition 98 is on, create a new partition using the Fat32 file system, and install 98 onto it, see if it works then

Yeah, I'm only running Windows because I have to for my GCSE's in ICT. If I didn't have to use microsoft software then I wouldn't but the school won't spend time helping me sort it out so I can run it on my Linux system. I also have software that isn't compatible with Linux or ME and some that isn't Linux or 98 compatible.

There is no reason on Gods earth to dual 98 and Me.
Me will do everything your 98 did and more.Whats your reason ?
Most users are doing an XP/W98 or Me.

Its cause Me is crap; so he needs 98 to do the programs which will be destroyed by Me!

BS he doesn't understand how to do this.It seema like a student going a little too far too fast with this stuff.
I progressed from Win 3 to 95 to 98 to 98se and now Me.
W Me is totally backward compatible to all except.XP is not
What the hell is destroyed.A new Me install and installing W9x software
will not destroy what wasn't there,only install it on demand.



And maybe a mix of Linux. messed you up.
Really.Slow down.and drop by again.
