i dont no if it is possible but if it is.. please help me.

i got this crazy idea after i installed winXP along with win98.

C: has win98 and D: has winXP

earlier i installed few programs in win98 (take Yahoo Messenger for example)

when i boot into winXP i can access the win98 program files.

so is there any way to run these applications without re-installing in winXP.

like i want to run Yahoo Messenger installed on win98 from winXP (i.e without re-installing).

waiting 4 ur help.

is c and d on separate drives? if they are ii run programs like mediplayer on f drive onto c drive

if you do a system restore first, then try it it should work if not then just roll back to your last restore point you created.
