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.
