I currently have two 80gb hard disks. The second hard drive is for Linux, which will remain the same for this, but the first hard drive is what I want to change.
On the first hard drive, I currently have 3 partitions: A 2gb FAT16 partition with IBM DOS 5.0 on it, a 73gb NTFS partition with Windows XP Home SP2, and a 5gb storage drive which was originally used to transport things between XP and Linux, but has fallen out of use since I installed DOS, and can simply use the DOS FAT16 partition for such transport.
Here is my boot.ini
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
Here's the setup I want instead:
Partition 1: 10gb, FAT32, Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition
Partition 2: 68gb, NTFS, Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2
Partition 3: 02gb, FAT16, IBM DOS 5.0
The problem is that DOS will not install on anything other than the first partition on the first hard disk. I was wondering if it would work to move the files over to another hard drive, and change boot.ini, or if DOS would simply not be able to handle this.
I want 98, but I'd like to be able to keep real DOS around for learning purposes. Is it possible to get DOS working on a different partition? If so, how do I go about doing it, and what boot.ini will I need for the final setup?
