You need to upgrade to Windows 98 or Windows 98 SE or add more partitions to the drive (drives D: E:, etc.). After upgrading you can convert the partition to FAT32 and expand it with something like Partition Magic or Ghost. However, with a 6.4 G drive I would not give the C: the entire 6.4 G. I have a 6.4 and have it divided 2 G for C: and 4 G for D: But, I would do it this way... backup everthing important on the drive (My Documents, favorites, etc.). Take the drive to bare metal with fdisk. Install the 98 upgrade (see http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/software/windows/upgrade/intro.htm), restore from the backup, and reinstall all applications, Internet, etc. Larry
