Two questions: What command did you use to format drive C:? Since a format operation erases the disk, you would have had to reload Windows (or something) after formatting to boot up the computer on drive C:. What did you do after formatting drive C:?Well, first I made a start-up disk. Then I restarted in DOS mode, and tried format c:/s, which the instructions I was trying to follow said to do. But it said I didn't have enough memory for this. So then I just tried format c:I then booted with the start-up disk, and tried to reload Win98 from the original disk. Didn't work. I got some error message I didn't quite understand. I finally (and I don't remember how) figured out I needed to run fdisk and partition the drive. I did this, but Win98 still wouldn't load--kept getting hung up. Then I somehow or other figured out I needed to format the drive again after repartitioning it. This time Win98 loaded just fine. And that's where I am now--newly loaded Win98, but no second hard drive.Hope this made some sense. I still don't know how I figured all this out!Ellen
