    You have to format the partition which has XP installed on it first and then install 98 and after that you can install XP again, if you like it.

    yes, but its kinda sluggish if your system is not at par and there is not enuf RAM.
    __________
    Could u explain what really happens when insert your windows 98 CD.
    I mean the point at which trouble starts.

    Did u try other Win 98 CD? , may be your CD is not bootable.

    __________
    well when i boot from a bootable 98 cd it gives a message system is vrifying... then suddenly it gives a messaage saying the setup file has to be at least ............... som many bytes long and it gives the dos prompt again..
