Is that what the? was about ?

Quote: reply or get lost.Its not a "boradband and a fast conection."
problem.

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.

Best i can do for now,till you drop by.

If you use windows 2000 or xp they will offer you the ability to have 98/xp mil/xp 98/2000 etc at boot.
I ve never heard of a built in routine for setting this up with 98 and millenium. Id try a loader as was suggested by ox54.
The reason one might want dual boot is if one system crashes the other is instantly available bluto.
Millenium works very well-If you do the online updates!-if not it has problems with the active desktop which causes crashing. The patches are needed. The defragmenter in millenium is twice as fast as in 98. Check the 98 cd for the tools folder and find tweek ui-it adds wonderful features and the ability to change and direct both 98 and millenium.
regclean is also a highly desireable addition for added windows stability.
To install tweek ui right click on its inf file and choose install.

Everyone doesn't have every Windows version ever made.
This is a 98/me ? I think and a useless one to boot.
Tweak[you and I] TweakUI,or 233.Its usefull when you use Windows,nothing to do with dual boot.

Okay just press F8 as your system starts up until you get a screed giving you multiple option on how to boot. Sometimes the simplest thing is the best. I dont know why these guys havent already mentioned that. Maybe they just arent as smart as you would have hoped.

Well you first have to go to your file settings and display system files and it should just be in you main directory.

The win.ini found in the windows folder is a boot file.
