Question Does Australia have Windows XP yet?

If so, and anyone of you have installed it, please tell me how to set up a dual boot system. I have Win XP on one partition, and Windows 98 SE on the other partition. I can switch between the two, using a boot disk and fdisk, but I'd like to be able to select from a menu during startup.

I've asked the guys in the General Forums area, but have not got much of a response, I figured since the Aussie section was the busiest of the board, I'd ask you guys.

Thanks! Hope someone can help! (I should know this stuff already)

Doesn't look like I have to go crazy afterall :s5
I am dual booting windows XP, with windows XP (too lazy to do a reformat when i needed a clean install so I temporarily installed it on the other partition and the PC automatically set up the dual boot screen to come up, same happened when i dual booted 98 and windows 2000 a short while ago.

If you need any more help after that link though, i'll see what I can work out
