    Windows 98 and XP have totally different ways of creating partitions.

    Windows 98:
    If you already have 98 installed, you will be unable to create partitions unless you have un-partitioned space, partition magic, and/or partitions you are willing to delete.

    1. Starting with a blank hard drive, put a Windows 98 boot floppy in the floppy drive, and elect to start the computer without CD-ROM support.

    2. At the A: prompt, type "fdisk"

    3. Hit 'y' to enable large disk support.

    From here, you should be able to tell what to do by reading the screen.

    Try to use PartitionMagic! In Windows 98, you can use FDISK.EXE in addition of PartitionMagic, but FDISK.EXE is more difficult to use.
