yea, i ran fdisk, created a partition, tried to format c: said it can't format a network drive or something, so then i booted a winXP cd and formatted it that way(in fat) so now i'll see if ican do something with it.
after that i tried formatting it in dos and now its letting me format it in there.
and one more questiong, i dont need a server but watever cd i can get to work will be fine, should i use the w2ksp2 cds from compaq and copy the i386 or use my windows 2000 server cd and copy the i386?
