Is there an advantage? My windows 98 dual boot doesnt seem to think so (although I understand win98 cant use it)

Far more up to date file system, less wastefull of disk space and far more secure than FAT32.

The segment size on any of my drives is only 4KB and that includes my 60Gig drive as well as a 512mb that i use at times as a removeble

As you say 98 cant use New Technology File System. But Windows NT, 2K and XP were designed to run on this (although you can choose FAT32 for XP its not realy designed for it) Running XP on FAT32 disables some Advanced Options...eg file encription..etc.

As I still want to make sure that some of my old software works but it does unfortunatley mean that I have both OS's running on FAT32 at the moment. Its an 80GB barracuda drive so I hope it wont cause to many problems at the moment!

It should not cause any problems.

Now if only I could fix the other problems
