What is the easiest way to install XP and Millenium
A while ago I had the choice of XP,Millenium and 2000 on booting up.
I acheived this by massive amounts of trial and error.
A fault recently appeared on one of my 3 hard drives, and since then I have formatted drives, moved files/folders about and changed jumper/cable connections.
What is the easiest and quickest way to install XP and Millenium, without using multiboot software.

Install ME first on C: partition formatted FAT32. Then install XP on D: partition, formatted either NTFS or FAT32 (FAT32 if you want ME to be able to see D: drive).
XP will offer you choice of which OS to run at boot up... no need for any extra multiboot software (note, you should install oldest OS first, otherwise you have extra grief to achieve dual boot).
See also http://www.techspot.com/articles/dualboot/index.shtml for a very good primer on the whole process."The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; It's just that they know so much that isn't so." -- Ronald Reagan
