I have obtained a computer which has Windows ME installed and I want to practice Fdisk but how do I get to it? I have downloaded the boot disk for ME.

Have been partitioning and playing around with settings and have formatted and am now trying to load Windows 98u as I don't have Windows ME disk which was previously loaded. get an error message: Setup found a compressed volume or a disk cache utility on your computer. Quit setup and check your compressed volume with your disk compression software or remove the disk cache utility then run setup again.

How do I deal with this?

...After using fdisk, the drive will need to be formatted so you can put an OS on it. You'll need a Win 98 boot disk if you intend to install Win 98. Try booting from the 98 disk, then installing OS after formatting.

... if you're formatting the drive to put an OS on it, you must add the /s switch to the format command. So at the A: prompt, type

format/s ?: (? is the drive letter that you're formatting)
