Default Dual Boot - Win98/WinXPpro - Win98SE won't recognise DVD ROM drive

I want to dual boot Win98SE with XPpro, and to do this I have to install
Win98SE first. I have a new machine with an ASUS P5B motherboard (Dual DDR,
S-ATA II, etc) and a clean HD which I have partitioned (4) and formatted to
FAT32.

Trouble is, Win98SE (and earlier OS's) won't recognise the fitted JMicron
JMB 363 PATA/SATA PCI Express IDE controller, and tells me there is no CD-ROM
drive fitted. The manufacturer's web site does not list any drivers for OS's
prior to WinXP.

Does anyone know of a suitable driver - or a work-around??

(I have also posted this in the WINXP forum - my apologies if this was wrong!)

You install XP and your software. Then install free VirtualPC and once
installed, install W98 in it. This program allows you to run W98 and XP at
the same time--no reboot required.
