while installing windows, remember your partition layout, start with installing win98, then windows XP. The windows installations will overwrite your bootloader, so grub or lilo (whatever you use) will be lost, and needs to be reinstalled after the windows installations. this is possible with a linux installation or rescue CD.

greetz,
