Active partitions

Hi, I have a 2 partition 40gig HD.
10gig ME and 30gig XP, using PM I can chose which partition to make active or PQboot to chose which to boot from. I want to create a dual boot using the XP utility, I can re-install XP but not ME(allready on the system) any ideas on how to approach this?

as you have partition magic just delete the partition with XP on it then recreate it and reload XP

Thanks woodchip, allready started a fresh installation of XP over the old. ME is showing as inactive OS/2 boot man is this a problem?
IS there a dual boot option or will I get it when I restart after the installation is complete? Thanks k_g

You should not have any dual boot before loading XP, As Xp will set it up for you

Thanks again woodchip, I'll let you know what happens, the first time I tried a dual boot I had a 2gig partition before ME and XP didn't set up a boot option, I've deleted that partition and re-distrubuted the free space and ME is now my first partition so hopefully it will work.
