    Dual Boot and Outlook 200

    I have a dual boot (Windows 98 and Windows 2K) machine. I want to be able to access my e-mail through Outlook 2000 from either OS.
    I want to move the "PST" file from the C: drive (Windows 98)
    to my user folder on the F: drive (Windows 2K). How do I change Outlook 2000 in the Windows 98 mode to read and write to the F: drive? I have only one copy of MS Office installed, I did NOT install in separate copy on my F: drive (big mistake) when I installed it in Windows 2K.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    is the win2k partition NTFS? if so, keep in on a partition win98 can see.

    move it, then open outlook and when it whines about not finding the pst, point it to the new location. as long as both OS can see the drive it's on, you're ok.
