go to http://ranish.com/part and download Ranish Partition Manager.
connect the harddrive to your desktop.
run Partition manager from a real DOS prompt, not a DOS window.
read all the help screens before you change anything.
be sure you know how the program works, then set the drive to bootable (active) using Partition Manager.
you do not neet to partition and format d:/s again.
COUTION: BE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO USE THE PROGRAM BEFORE CHANGING ANYTHING. if you make changes on your 'c' drive by mistake, you will do much work to fix it.
after partition and format, etc, i always make a folder for each driver and each program and let windows only install windows programs in the Program Files folder.
i then copy all the setup files for each program to their own folder.
you do not need to copy the whole windows 98se cd to the harddrive. just copy the directory 'win98'.
after you setup win98, then you can find all your drivers and setup programs easily.
