how do i format my spare hard disk?

  Mysticnas 11:38 05 Mar 03

it keep telling me that it can't and that i should close all windows that show the drive contents, but no windows are open.

oh yeah... and why does it show the drive as 115Gb when it's 120Gb???

How are you trying to format the disk, Mysticnas? If the disk was format previously, it will show less than it's stated capacity.

The diff in size is prob down to the format..

Which OS are you using? If XP then insert the XP CD and format the HDD you want from there. If ME or earlier do it DOS i.e. start the PC in ms dos mode
