Can someone kindly refresh my memory on how to Format the hard drive on a PC running Win 98.
I did my own system when I upgraded my PC but I'm doing my friends for her tomorrow and I just can't remember the procedure.........cheers

Start with Floppy startup disc. Type at A:\ Format C:/s when you get to the bottom just press enter for Volume restart with the Win98 start disc choose start with CD-rom support Type the CD letter if it was D:\ that will be a Ram drive until you get Win98 back on board so the CD will have moved to E:\ you need the Win98 CD in the comp type setup and it should go. This is no good for a Restore disc, You need to know what she as got first. Win98 Disc or Restore disc
