Have set up Win98se on a C drice created on a primary Dos partition.

Want to add 2 Slave drives

What do I do re fdisk for the slaves

Primary, Logical,or what

Thanks for the help in advance

Create Extended DOS partition first, then Logical partitions within that, if you want multiple partitions on each drive.

You do not need to do anything other than fit and configure the drives in bios so they are recognised. in windows if you see the drives just right click on drive and choose format windows will give them a drive letter each

You can set up your slave drives to each have a primary partition, but you don't need to. If you do, then each PRIMARY partition will be seen before the logical drives on your master HD. There are advantages to this approach. If you are constantly reading drive C:\ and writing to D:\ then have C:\ and D:\ on different drives will speed up the process.
