Invisible Partition / No modem driver

  JBX22 16:09 03 Mar 2007

Thanks to help I got here, I managed to replace the HD on my friens machine and reinstall XP. I have two problems:

I partitioned the disc and set aside 75Gb for progs. XP formatted this, but not the rest. So now it is unformatted, has no drive letter and windows can't see it. CAn I fix this (if it is invisible) or do I need to reformat whole drive and use Partition magic?

Also she has a modem (56k) but no modem driver. So I can't connect her to the web. I've takn it out but there are no manufacturers details. is there somewhere I can down load a genric driver>

Thanks in advance
