    Recently built a new system with WinME OS running with FAT32. My old system was setup with Win95 OS running FAT16.

    Is it possible to make HD from old system (FAT16) slave to new HD (FAT 32) so files could be copied onto new HD without any conflicts or problems.

    Is there anything else I should look for if I try this?

    Thanks in advance

    It's not a problem, the system will work with both installed, it just changes the way the info is stored on the drive, It can read and write both
