Dual booting Windows 98 and Windows 2000

I have two hard drives -- one with Windows 2000, one with Windows 98. Is it possible to create a dual boot option and boot without losing data, which took so long to restore to original after recent crash? If so, how would one go about it? Thanks so much.
Windows 98 and Windows 2000 in a dual-boot configuration works well, if you configure the computer properly. Format the boot disk using FAT32 and install Windows 98 on it. Then, install Windows 2000 on the second disk. The basic rules are that you must install Windows 98 before installing Windows 2000, Windows 98 must be on the boot disk, and don?t install both operating systems on the same disk.
