Lost access to win98 boot in dual

March 8, 2009 at 09:57:45
Specs: Windows XP
Professionals set up my multiple partitions and win98/win xp dual boot. Now the 98 is not an option when I boot up. I may have done xp repair or even reinstall some where down the line to fix a problem.
How can I get my win 98 boot option back hopefully without starting from scratch. Every indication is that 98 is still on the drive I just can not boot it.

Thank you in advance

"I may have done xp repair or even reinstall some where down the line to fix a problem"

What do you mean, you "may" have? Either you did or you didn't.
