norton ghost, ghost the partition to an image. Then use the image to re-write the disk. When you do this, you can change the size of the partition. I usually wipe all the partitions in dos w/ fdisk before i ghost it.

What is your email address?

I'll send you the .exe, you need to download the win98 se bootdisk image from www.bootdisks.com. You'll need to burn a bootable cd, using the win98 bootdisk. ghost.exe will need to be in the contents of the cd.

Sorry, http://www.bootdisk.com/


If you don't know your way around dos, and you dont know how to burn a bootable cd. You're better off backing up your data and reinstalling.

When you reinstall xp you'll need to delete all the partitions before installing it. Also unplug any other drives in the system at that time. (smart media card readers, other hds, etc)
