    I recently installed windows xp after one of the sectors went bad on my hard drive and messed up my windows 98. It worked fine after that, so i took it home, started it up and it went throught system booting stuff, then when it was showing the final windows xp loading bar, the screen flickered a bit, then i got a signal error from my monitor. I restarted and it does the same every time?? all i can say is what the?!

    XP and 98 differ greatly.
    First you would need to do a full format of the drive to correct the sector problem.
    If you want a dual boot install win98 1st on it's seperate petition the XP on it's. This will allow XP to create a proper boot.ini file.
    Never try to install XP on the same petition as 98. It simply will not work
