we will get rid off windows 98 of the 40gig is there information you need off the 40gig all though you have formatted the drive we may be able to get data back.
If you do not need anything then we will just delete the windows install.
Start internet explorer and go to the top of the screen and click on tols then click on windows update.
This will still update 98.
Do you run programs like Microsoft office?

You do not need an operating system on any other disk. I have one computer with 5 disk an the operating system on 1 disk only. Do you have any programs like Microsoft office ?
Did you run the update from inside internet explorer (see post 18)
When you save files just click save as and point to the 40gig drive.
to change your drive from Y try this
Try it this way but it doesn't always work.
Doubleclick the System icon in the Control Panel. Once the System Properties window appears, select the "Device Manager" tab. Find the device or drive that you want to change and highlight it. Click the "Properties" button to open the item's Properties settings. Select the "Settings" tab and under the "Reserved drive letters" heading, choose the same letter for the "Start drive letter" and "End drive letter" options. If the drive letter fields are disabled, you can usually enable them by checking the "Removable" option to change the drive letters. However, once you have changed your drive letter settings, be sure to uncheck the "Removable" box if it initially remained checked. Click OK twice and restart your computer to enable the changes.
Or try this Letter assigner

Restart your computer and start tapping the F8 key. This should give you a black and white screen with options.
Choose the option to start in dos mode. When you have the dos prompt
type in scanreg /restore enter (note a space between scanreg and the /).
This should give you a list of the last 5 times the computer started correctly pick a date before you had the lock up.
A properly working registry has the word "Started" next to the date.
Did you delete the windows install off the 40gig ?
