Hi da_badest_chick...

If I understand correctly, you have a Win98 Startup floppy disk? If not we'll have to create one. Let me know and we'll get started.

Let's try it with the Startup disk you have.

Put the Startup floppy disk in the floppy drive and reboot. It should boot to the floppy and take you to an options screen with either three or four options for starting the machine. Press Shift + F5 This will take you to a command prompt A:\

At the A:\ prompt, type fdisk and press "Enter". Type Y for large disk support and press "Enter" This will take you to another options screen. Choose the option to show partition information (option 4 if memory serves) and press "Enter". Post that information here for me.

I'll only need this information once, but need the partition info to put together the instructions for you. I'll also give you a link to a guide you can print out so you'll have a visual reference.
