Can you help me with step by step for dual booting Windows 98 and 7?

I have a cd for win98, but I am scared that something is going to go wrong, like it is going to erase windows 7 and, that it is going to brake my computer, and that it won't work., so I will be left with no OS, since my computer did not came with a windows 7 disk, just like all new computers. Can you give steps, also if possible for Dual boot windows 2000?

Well then, you would start by installing windows 98 first on say a 40 GB partition, then install Windows 7 on the rest of the drive or however you want to set it up.

You could use the Partition Wizard Boot cd to delete the drive clean then make your partitions.

Simply download the Partition Wizard iso file, then burn it to dvd using Imgburn or Nero.

Boot the pc with the PW disc in the tray to make your partitions.

Partition Wizard Bootable CD allows user to manage partition directly with partition manager bootable CD.

98 won't run. You cannot find the drivers for your PC. Virtual is the only way to go. Try this (works very well for me): VMware Player - Install Windows 8 -- Just choose 98 in lieu of /8.

I think you have to go virtual because of the driver problem. Did you try VMware or Virtual Box. Here are a couple of tutorials. They are for Windows 8, but everything should be the same. The only difference is that you have to select 98 in lieu of Windows 8 when you configure the virtual partition (in step #5).

PS: I would try VMware first.
