Within the last week I have upgraded from Windows 98SE to XP using a clean
install of XP.
After a few days of searching the net I managed to find XP drivers for all
my hardware except for my TV card (Gallant (Minton) IV-560).
In reply to my posts for help locating or creating XP drivers for this
hardware (on microsoft.public.windowsxp.general and
microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support) it has now been suggested that
i use a program called BtSpy (http://btwincap.sourceforge.net/custom.html)
whilst my TV card is installed and running properly under a Win98SE system,
in order to create a profile for my hardware that i can then use to set the
custom drivers up under XP.
Since I don't know anyone who is still running a Win98 OS on their desktop,
I'm posting this message to ask whether it is possible for me to temporarily
reinstall Windows 98SE as the second OS (in order to dual-boot) on my XP
based system, which is formatted to NTFS?
Once I have created this driver profile, using the software above, I will
want to completely remove the Windows98 OS - is this possible? What are the
chances of an operation such as this screwing up my otherwise stable and
reliable XP system?
Any help greatly appreciated. Many thanks,
