I've just run fdisk on a toshiba 2180cdt laptop which has a 10 gig hard drive--not sure of the make of drive. Partitioned fine--c drive is set to active but at the next prompt when I try and format c: I get the message format not supported on drive c? What gives? I thought that the format util wasn't on my startup disk(win98se) but I extracted that and it extracted fine but still no go? Scratching my head. Reboot with Cd support this time?....
Thanks MicroBell. That seemed to work fine but I did get lots of files(all vxd's and ini's and infs) which didn't get found when I loaded win98 from the disk I skipped through these but am manually loading them as needed by copying win98 from the cd--kept getting failed copy from 'c:windows\system\precopy' .

The partition did have win98se on it before and the partition.

Real glad I found this forum--I'm finally glad to be a geek!
