    I don't know anything about the hardiskproblem you have but I can tell you how to do a dual boot.
    First see that you have atleast two partitions.
    second Install windows 98 first!!!
    Third after installing windows 98 install win XP in a drive other then that you installed win 98 in.

    For example if U install win 98 in the c: drive Install win XP in the d: drive

    The dual boot option you will get automatically when Booting.
    Also see that you install win 98 FIRST and then win XP
    HAPPY COMPUTING :D :D

    Looks like your mobo doesn't support this high capacity HDD. Try flashing your BIOS to the latest version which you can find at the motherboard's manufacturer site. This should definitely solve your problem.
