Can one keep the Windows (98) system files in one partition and all appslications and data in another partition? Does this help keep the system files free from corruption?

Thanks for the opinions.

I strongly endorse multiple partitions, it makes it a lot easier to back stuff up. I normally have a boot partition that has just applications and O/S on it, the least amount of other stuff I can put there. I have a data partition that has my working directories, source files, word processing files, etc. Finally, I have a work partition where downloaded files, and temp directories are placed while I'm working. Of course, it's nice to have another disk or three for backups and archives, I use a pair of 120gig USB 2.0 disks for that purpose.
