I just bought an old computer which was onced connected to a server. Now in order to get on it, I need a password which,of course, I don't have. I would like to erase everything and start anew. Any suggestions on how to do this?

Hello Hellbent21...

If you will be installing Windows 98, you can use the fdisk feature on the Win98SE Startup Disk to wipe the drive. You should then be able to partition, format, and reinstall Windows 98.

If you will be installing Windows XP, you can partition and format the drive using the installation CD.
