You didn't note which two. I deal with the issues too often so it's best to just tell you that you can't install two on C of differing Microsoft versions since conflicts erupt.

That's a common install. But the mandrake is usually on it's own partition and not C:. Putting two different OSes on the same partition is not the usual.

The install is common and noted at the Mandrake and other web sites.

Set up each on its own partition or hard drive. Older OS goes to C, while newer 2K or XP goes to the second partition/drive.
