I have installed Windows XP using NTFS file structure. Some of my older 
programs do not work. I am unsure if this is because of NTFS or Windows XP 
compatibility. If a program worked in FAT32 using Windows ME, but does not work 
using NTFS with Windows XP, might it work with Windows XP using FAT32. I like 
Windows XP and will continue to use it regardless. Currently, I use a dual boot 
system, one partition in NTFS and Windows XP and one in FAT32 and Windows 98 
but I find this a pain. Thanks.
