Having recently moved up to Windows XP I find that a favourite game will not play and the game manufacturer declares no support for this OS.
I know I can switch 'master' and 'slave' and install the old OS on one drive, but how do I select,simply,the one I need without swapping jumpers. nockpile

If you want to load Win98se on one of the drives, Set it as Master then Remove the other drive while you load 98 on it
