where you can find an upgrade that allows earlier XP versions to see the full disk, and tools to partition the disk. Large drives are quite cheap now, I've gotten 80gb drives on sale for $40.00 without the bothersome rebate. And you might be able to find a smaller, say 10 or 20gb drive to use as Master and set the 160 up as slave, and even arrange to turn it off when not in use..

I HIGHLY recommend you back up your files before using Partition Magic.
On the lighter side of things... XP is much more stable than Win98. And it can be made to look and feel like you're running Win98... only prettier. I had the hardest time switching over myself, but after I did, I'm so glad. Sooooo much more stable!!!
If you note my signature, I still run Win98 in dual boot with XP. I still have Quake games that I run under Win98 that won't run quite correctly under XP... and thats the only reason I keep it.
