Partition size for Win 98 SE

  Marty1 22:05 19 Sep 2003

Heeding advice, I want to partition my hard drive so that one partition just contains the operating system. How big will it need to be to store Win 98 SE?

Its only 15Gb

Am new to this so will ask your patience if I don't pick up on something first time....the 15Gb drive has been recently purchased (at the moment running Win 95 on a 10Gb)...I had read that it was a good idea to put just the operating system on separate partition (in case it needs formatting and re-installing in future) but hadn't thought about the 'rest'. I won't be using XP on this computer.

Yes I intend installing the 15Gb drive and putting Win 98 SE on to it...not sure yet whether I will keep the 10Gb drive in or not....if it's not too much hassle I will. Thanks so far for the help, I didnt realise that some programs shoved bits into 'C' regardless.
