You can do it with a utility LLFORMAT.EXE or do it manually with the DiskEditor from Norton Utilities. (Both should be found on the Internet) NEVER USE THE LOW-LEVEL FORMAT UTILITY FOUND IN SOME OLDER BIOSES! These can actually damage an IDE drive! This is beceause they do it on a hardware level. Programs can only do it on software level. (Less agressive) The program used for the operation should be on a bootable Disk. I have also written generic drivers for CD-Rom and Mice to regain access to a CD-Rom drive and a mouse when reinstalling Woindows 98. (Normally the windows 98 disc is bootable by itself, but older systems cannot boot from CD-Roms.) If you want me to sent you the files, simply sent me an e-mail.

Any normal windows 98 boot disk will provide the driver for your cd rom and also your mouse when the GUI of the installation starts. If you need a bootdisk and don't have one visit www.bootdisk.com.
