Simple answer: No
I have 1 computer on my network that dual boots WinME and WinXP
Windows XP Pro will install a bootloader to select between the 2 operating systems. As far as I know this can NOT be done with emachines (Dell,Gateway,HP,Compaq) rescue CD's as they only contain an image for backup purposes and not the actual Windows setup. I don't believe dual boot is an option on WinXP Home edition.
Complex answer: Yes
Add a second hard drive for Win98 and a 3rd party bootloader (perhaps your BIOS already has a bootloader feature?....mine does)
Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux
and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.
