Default Dual booting Win 98 & 2000

Right, so to cut out all of the fiddling about, I decided to backup
everything and have completely erased the HDD.

I have managed to install Win 98 as far as the 'restart after copying files'
and then got the error message...

'Insufficient memory to initialize Windows.

Quit one or more memory-resident programs or remove unnecessary utilities
from your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files, and restart your computer.'

So I did a quick search and found theMaxPhysPage=30000 fix form Microsoft...

Error Message: Insufficient Memory to Initialize Windows

However, when I get to command prompt and got to edit the SYSTEM. INI file
there is nothing in there. No sign of the [386Enh] section that I'm supposed
to add the line to. The system.ini section is completely empty.
I did try anding theMaxPhysPage=30000 anyway, but no change.

Any ideas guys??
