is a patch available to update [ workaround ] win95b fdisk limitation of 2 gig and retain the fat16 format as win95b does not fully support fat32. I really would like to keep the windows version i have.[ p133 with wd 2.2 GB hdd + wd 20 GB hdd ]

I had no problem using fat32 with 95b.

You will need to reformat as there is no conversion utility with win95.
Just choose yes to large disk support in FDISK.

FAT16 is limited by design to 2GB, and is very inefficient for drives > 1GB anyway.

I would split the 20gb drive up anyway, as even FAT32 is quite inefficient on large drives.
