Still lost here tried booting with repair cd but can't find main partition. had partitionmagic support floppy but don't seem to read them.

Any ideas will a new copy of boot magic be bootable to solve this problem?

It will not work like that. You have to load 98 first on to a blank Computer then install XP you may be able to use if you change the jumpers on the drives so that the slave becomes Master and visa versa

Some excellent links, I went and got partition magic 8 today £30 and I now have a usable partition, the rest as they say should be easy!!!!!!

Well pleased m8

How did you get on with your interview? well I hope.

Funnily enough I thought I would better myself and applied for the position of village idiot at Elwick, posh place.

I did not get the job because I turned up at the interview. lol
