Win 98 on NFTS formatted hard drive

Is there any way I can load Win 98 on this hard drive. F disk doesn't seem to work. Cheers.

You need to convert to FAT32. W98 does not recognise NTFS partitions...

98se will not work on NTFS ever. If this computer as been running XP or Vista you need this to first clear the Partition and drive info click here You can then use the Win98 Floppy to create a Partition and format it as Fat32

Many thanks for advice - all of it was useful.
Beta was correct and this is what I did.
I also downloaded Killdisk, free, onto a floppy disk and will give it a go in the future.
