Reformatting Hard Disk & Partioning it.How Please?

  HickCup 16:34 21 Dec 2003

I'd like to to do a clean install & partion my hard disk while doing so ( in order to save OS, drivers & various files).Any ' Step by Step advice ' would be very much appreciated.
OS = 98 SE. I have the disk, but not all the drivers are on it. That's the main reason for the partition.

Fingers X'ed here....Thanks, WongAgain.

click here tells you what you need to do *before* you reformat, as well as formatting itself.
