Go to www.belarc.com and download Belarc Advisor.. Run that and you should get your info.. Of course, that means you need an operating system installed..
Also, download THIS WIN98SE BOOTDISK
.. Have a clean formatted floppy in the drive..
Double click the downloaded file and let it ectract the needed files to the floppy..
Next, boot using the newly made floppy.. Once you get to a:> prompt, type in "fdisk" (no quotes) and press <enter>
Your first step will be the option to remove the Primary DOS partition.. Say YES to all questions..
Once that has finished, use the option in fdisk to "Create a Primary DOS partition".. Again, say YES to all questions.. If your mobo has LBA capability, it should set a partition size to that of your hdd.. If it isn't, then you will need either a BIOS upgrade (if available), make more than one partition or, lastly, use a disk overlay program from the manufacturer of the hdd to partition and format the drive..
Once the drive has the Primary DOS partition set, reboot (keep the floppy in the drive).. This time when you get to a:> prompt, type in "format c:" (no quotes) and press <enter>.. Again, YES to all questions..
After the drive has been formatted, you can install your operating system..
