Chapter 34. OS Mix and Match > Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 9x

Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 9x

This configuration might be one of the less common installations of all. It is, however, very possible to create a setup using all three of these operating systems. Take the following approach:

  1. Create three partitions (or four if you want a separate data partition).

  2. If you decide you want a data partition, make it FAT16 because NT 4.0 can't see FAT32. FAT16 is the one common denominator. See Table 34.6 for a suggested layout. As you can see from the table, we're suggesting using FAT16 for all the partitions to ensure maximum compatibility and the least amount of drive letter shifting.
