Perfect.

Now install the Max Blast you downloaded and run it on THAT drive. We want to partition the drive and prepare it for Windows 98. Should be pretty straight foreward...if you have a problem or any questions, I'm right here.

Install the Max Blast on the XP Master and run it on the slave. When you start the program, it should automatically detect both drives...make sure you choose the slave. Use maximum size.

Now we need to pull the drive out of the XP machine and jumper it back the way it was when you took it out of the Win98 machine...as master...and put it into the 98 machine hooked up to the last connector on the ribbon cable.
