File System Considerations when Dual Booting with Windows NT

Windows 98 operates in a multiboot system in the same way as previous versions of Windows, Windows NT, and DOS operated. A few provisos involve the FAT32 file system that might have been installed with Windows 98 or Windows 95 OSR2.

You cannot multiboot to another operating system if the C: drive is a FAT32 file system. Other file systems are not able to access files on a partition formatted as FAT32. The older operating systems, such as DOS and previous versions of Windows and Windows NT, do not recognize the FAT32 file system. Some utilities enable Windows NT to access a FAT32 volume. See the end-of-chapter section "Secrets of Mastering the Windows 98 Environment" for more information.
