    Default Hard drives

    Hi Guys,

    Make sure the HP drive can handle a 60GB HDD, I've noticed sometimes you have to limit it to 32GB HDD (jumpers) and/or try a HDD overlay if your BIOS don't like it.

    Optimum number of partitions for Win98 on that HDD is 1 primary & say 3 logical.

    FAT32 can have some hassles with partitions over 40GB in size (machine & HDD dependant)
