I want to dual boot Win98SE with XPpro, and to do this I have to install Win98SE first. I have a new machine with an ASUS P5B motherboard (Dual DDR, S-ATA II, etc) and a clean HD which I have partitioned (4) and formatted to FAT32.

Trouble is, Win98SE (and earlier OS's) won't recognise the fitted JMicron JMB 363 PATA/SATA PCI Express IDE controller, and tells me there is no CD-ROM drive fitted. The manufacturer's web site does not list any drivers for OS's prior to WinXP.

Does anyone know of a suitable driver - or a work-around??
