I installed my voodoo 3 3000 agp on my computer and i'm dual booting windows 2000 and windows me. i tried installing the 3dfx tools for both operating systems but when i install it for the second os, the first os's 3dfx tools no longer works. i have no idea what to do cause it doesn't let you choose a location to install the tools. so whether i'm in 2k or me, it always overwrites the previous files in program files. any ideas guys? thanks

Are both OSes on the same partition, just in different subdirectories?

That's what's causing the problem (overwriting program files folder). Those tools are installing specific info for whatever OS it's installing on. I don't have a 3dfx card (so I'm not sure if you can or not), but could you get away with not installing the tools? Maybe you can just install the driver and not run through the whole setup routine.
Also, you may want to look at a product like System Commander or Partition Magic. Both create/resize/move partitions and have a boot menu for OS choices at startup. Would definitely fix your problem unless hard drive space is an absolute premium and you can't afford the extra space.
It could be that you're installing them into the same folder. Try putting them in separate ones. The OS is probably flippin b/c the file types are changing.
