Heres my delema. Im currently running windows 2k pro. I have a copy of ACT which is a contact management program that is a full working copy. However its only for win 98 or 95.

I have a second hd (8gigs)formatted for win98. Heres my problem.

A. I have to install this program on my 2nd HD.
B. My second HD is not NTFS but I cant boot to it either.

I need to find a way to load this program on my second drive.
Is there an easier way then taking my current drive and disconnecting in, making my secondary drive my master, loading windows 98 as my OS, installing my program, then disconnecting the drive, set up my original drive to be master again and my secondary would then have windows 98 and my program I need?

That is the only way I can think of doing it and it seems like one big friggin pain in the ass. If anyone knows of a shortcut on how to help lemme know. thanks.

Ps, I cant modify the path of the installation for this program. This program immediately recognizes Im running NTFS and aborts.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

P.S. If im a little unclear or you need information to help me please let me know.
Your mind is fine. Reality is what needs adjusting.

well, you cant dual boot 2000/NT and 9x if 2000/NT are on the boot partition and formatted with NTFS. the reason for that is b/c when you try to load 9x, it will look for some files in the boot partition and since it is NTFS, it wont be able to read it. What you can do is setup 9x on the other HD as a boot partition and then maybe back-up and reinstall your 2k as a dual boot.

Thank you CryptoKnight.

In the mean time I realized I can always change my bios settings to search for only the second HD. doesnt act as dual boot but temporarily solves my problem.

Thank you again.
