    MSDN on a multiple boot system (MSDN)

    I've got a triple boot system:

    Win 98 on drive C
    Win 2000 on drive F
    Win 2000 on drive G

    All 3 have VB 6 Enterprise.
    G also has VS .NET 2002.

    C has MSDN April 2001
    F and G have MSDN October 2001
    G has MSDN January 2002

    So there's at least two questions:

    1. Can I uninstall MSDN on C and F, then re-install using the directories
    used by the Win 2000 on G? Actually, the| MSDN files for the Win 2000 on G
    are really on I.

    2. Due to the way the hardware was configured when Win 2000 was added, the
    drive letters used by Win 98 and Win 2000 differ.
    Win 98 uses C-D and E-L.
    Win 2000 uses C-D and F-M.
    Would this cause a problem in sharing the MSDN files among the bootable
    systems?

    Re: MSDN on a multiple boot system (MSDN)

    I figured out how to do his.

    THe HHCOLREG.DAT file in each system has to be edited to use the same collection number used in the MSDN130.COL file.

    While I was at it, I also replaced the HH.dat files.

    I've done this for the two Win 2000 installations, next is the Win 98.
