  1. I just installed Windows XP on a Windows 98 Computer and i think that i partioned my drive for just windows xp instead of overwriting windows 98. I checked the drive and it only has 7 gigs.... ive almost used that just updating =/ does anyone know what i did wrong? and is there anyway to make the drive 100% xp
    I also dont know how to access/ find the windows 98 part of the drive

    Check Disk Management via Start > Run > diskmgmt.msc and see if there are multiple partitions on your HDD. If so, delete anything unrelated/uneeded by XP so you have "Unallocated" space. Then, use something such as GParted to extend XP's partition and occupy the entire drive.
