i'am not sure of this idea that i send to this reply but maybe it could be researched into something useful in some way shape or form. in fact it just might be another stupid idea that i had entered. i'am not the greatest but at most times i do happen to come up with some pretty good ideas at times so if this dosn't work then im sorry for the reply but here it is.

(i imagine that it's like the the police station telephone recorder
and your liquar store vcr recorder, when you slow down the speed of your motor of the recorder you are able to fit more data to the device of choice such as cd or video tape ext....
and like everyone else has said there is a lil bit of programing involved. and to the best of my knowledge the dvd records has a possiable slow speed that could or might accomplish this task for putting data to a slow speed or divix recorder records even slower yet. i think with the mixture of these combinations and some programing of the software and how you put it to cd so they don't creat a conflict that this once conflicting task with the new technoligy that this could be a very good possiablity.)

Seems to me that this way is too difficult, and complicated, you should try this "bootable CD wizard" at this site:

http://bootcd.narod.ru/

In Russian language but with included translator for english and others.
It took me ten minutes (AFTER I HAD ALL THE OPERATING SYSTEMS FOLDERS READY)to burn.

The page that was referanced is just information on how the XP setupp.ini file works, what you need to do is copy the relevent setup folders into a HDD directory, create a win98 boot floppy ( as this is the most flexable OS) and edit autoexec.bat and config.sys into a format that you can choose whick OS you want to install.

This will require you to know how batch files work!!!!

I'm going to make a cd up like this in a bit, so I have looked into the situalton , and it's possable, just takes a bit of work!

how to make the bootable floppy or cd for win xp ?

Copy all WinXp cd to Root
Copy Win98SE Cabs to Win98SE folder under root

I created following dir structure

CD-ROOT : WinXP CD Files
----DOCS
----SUPPORT
----i386
----VALUEADD
----<Other WinXP files>
----Win98SE (Folder having CABs)
----Extra Software Folder

You can always add extra OS as long as your CD space permits (Upto 800MB today).

Next thing to do is create a bootable floppy disk from Win98SE Control Panel>>Add Remove Programs.

Search for SMARTDRV.EXE and CHOICE.COM in Windows 98 system and copy those files to your bootable floppy.

Now edit config.sys so that following lines are there

--------------------------- SAMPLE CONFIG.SYS -------------------------------------------------
[menu]
menuitem=CD, Start computer with CD-ROM support.
menuitem=NOCD, Start computer without CD-ROM support.
submenu=OPERATING,Install Operating System.
menuitem=HELP,Help.
menudefault=CD,30
menucolor=3,0

[CD]
device=himem.sys /testmem:off
device=oakcdrom.sys /D:mscd001
device=btdosm.sys
device=flashpt.sys
device=btcdrom.sys /D:mscd001
device=aspi2dos.sys
device=aspi8dos.sys
device=aspi4dos.sys
device=aspi8u2.sys
device=aspicd.sys /D:mscd001

[NOCD]
device=himem.sys /testmem:off

[COMMON]
files=150
buffers=35,0
DOS=high,umb
stacks=9,256
devicehigh=ramdrive.sys /E 2048
LASTDRIVE=Z

[OPERATING]
submenu=WIN98SE,Install Microsoft Windows 98 SE.
submenu=WINXP,Install Microsoft Windows XP ( Professional Edition. )

[WIN98SE]
menuitem=WIN98SE_AUTO,Install Win98SE with answer file
menuitem=WIN98SE_NORMAL, Install Win98SE with normal procedure.

[WINXP]
menuitem=WINXP_AUTO,Install Windows XP with answer file
menuitem=WINXP_NORMAL, Install Windows XP with normal procedure.
------------------------------ END OF FILE -----------------------------------------

Next step is to edit autoexec.bat

------------------------------- SAMPLE AUTOEXEC.BAT ---------------------------

Now it is the bootable floppy ready.

Next to do is creating ANSWER FILES for Win98SE and WinXP

Now some final words :
Win XP takes some 500MB with all languages.
Win98SE will take 121MB,
So u have nearly 80MB Extra
Best software to be on CD are
-- Internet Explorer 6
-- DirectX9
-- Windows Media Player 9 for Win9x
-- Windows Media Player 9 for WinXP
-- Your Display Card/Sound Card/Modem/Motherboard/LAN Card drivers.
-- Winamp 2.91 (It shows video too)

Put whatever you like.

Use bootable floppy and create the CD using Nero or any other software which supports bootable CD creation.


Best of luck.

I have a Multi-OS Disk, I created just for that purpose. On it is Win 98, WinME, and WinXP (Ver1 has Home Ver2 has Pro). What I did was created a batch file with 3 Choices. (98 ME or Readme). Notice XP is not on there. I then load up a clients choice OS onto a machine. If they want multiple OS, I always load up the lesser of the 3 (98 or ME). Once finished, and ready to go, I then start up XP from the CDROM. There I have choices to start an upgrage or throw in a new installation. It runs as if you "Press any key to boot from CD" after the installions files copy onto the HD. I'll do a step by step on my site on geocities, for anyone interested by Oct 20, 03. I will also show how to make Win98 and WinME work in a multi boot enviroment.

www.geocities.com/guideferret/howto is where it will be

good luck.
