I am running Win XP pro & XPsp2 on a 80 GB hard drive.
I have just taken an old 4GB hard drive from a redundant PC and installed it as a slave . The slave still contains win 98 and i wish to clean everything off the the 4GB drive completely. I tried using the win98 startup floppy and when i got the A: prompt I typed 'Format D:' but it said format doesnt work on D drive.
how can i clear the slave drive of all its contents.
Regards

Click on Help in my computer.
Type format in the field
or Hard disk format.
follow the prompt
you format secondary drives from within XP I think
