Default Dual Booting - Possibly Tri-Booting?

I'm trying to "Dual Boot" using an older version of Win98 and a "newer"
version. I also have XP that I wish to install, along with the two
versions of 98, but I might not.
What is the best way to install each of these OS's and not have to have
a boot loader at startup? I know that when I install XP, it will
automatically install the boot loader, but I'd like to bypass that also.
Any help will be most appreciated.

although your request seems a bit odd...
it is possible to run different OS's without using a bootloader menu.

you can install your OS's on different drives
and depending on your bios...select which drive to boot from

there are also OS selection switches one could purchase


and finally, there is the boot floppy method

XP can boot from a floppy and so can win98

the only "trick" with win98 is to use the *full* msdos.sys file which you'd
have to copy from the hd
