grabster, be very careful. Not so long ago there was a similar thread by someone who accidently formatted the wrong disk. My advice would be to remove your existing disk and make the new one the master. Now, using a boot disk, (get the Win98SE bootdisk from click here) Fdisk, Partition and Format the new disk all in one go. When that is done replace your original disk (as master) and make the new disk a slave and reboot.
