Default Installing Win 98 on an XP System

Hi Friends !

I hope all is well and great !

My Name is Kush and I'm from India.

Friends, I want to install Windows 98 SE on my Windows XP System. I have a Bootable Win 98 CD so booting is not a problem. Win Xp is installed on my C drive and I have emptied and formated the D Drive for my Win 98 Installation.
When I run the following line - G:\Win98>SETUP, the Win 98 Installation starts but is not asking me where I would like to install the Windows 98. I want to install it in my D drive.

Kindly guide me how can I run the setup such that it installs 98 on my D Drive and does not affect the C Drive (Where XP is)

Please help me Friends...
Thanks and Regards
Kush

Why not install it into a VM on top of Windows XP.

If he responds we can see what he wants to do. Both good ideas.

Have a read through this: Install Windows 98 after Windows XP

Step #4 under the Installing Windows 98 heading outlines how to direct Win 98 to install on another partition.
