...no kidding. the last couple of times i've seen a dual-boot question, i've just let someone else come along later and handle it. anyway, back on topic... win 98 is probably still the best to dual boot from - i definitely wouldn't recommend upgrading to ME... i've heard horror stories about that edition... stick with 98.
i haven't heard anything about dual-boots with xp yet... but i've actually gotten a chance to play around with it lately (it was a pirated copy
) on my friend's laptop. as far as stability and user-friendlyness goes... i think microsoft finally got one right here. i couldn't manage to crash it. and i hate admitting that.
however... as far as choice and configurability go... it left a LOT to be desired... we had to uninstall it for lack of drivers available on-line... and only the ms programs would work. as far as the ms vs. linux wars go... i still think ms is digging their own grave.
