I bought V-Comm OS Commander so I could dual boot 98SE with XP on my new 300gig drive. After struggling with it for several days I gave up on using it. It kept hanging up, but at least I was able to use it to create three 100gig primary partitions (to get around the 98SE 120gig limit) on this drive. The fdisk utility on the 98SE boot floppy wouldn't let me partition the whole drive. I had problems getting 98SE to 'see' the partitions on this drive as a single master, so I figured I'd see how it worked as a slave drive. Now, even using this drive as a slave, I can't get 98SE to reliably 'see' the three partitions. I have named the partitions part1, part2, & part3. It keeps wanting to add an additional third partition which appears as a 'mirror' of part3. I end up seeing this in windows explorer: C:\ (my old 40gig master drive) D:\part1 E:\part2 F:\part3 G:\part3 Right-click, show properties on D, E, F, & G shows 100gig each, even though F & G are the same partition. If I try to copy any files to F or G, the OS gets confused & crashes. Then I have to reboot & reformat the partition before it is seen correctly again. However, the fdisk utility will still see the three partitions correctly. Does anyone know why windows is getting confused with this? I know I should go to XP exclusively, but if I can make this work, I would be happier. I like the old interface & the old programs that work with it. Thanks.
