I'll be getting the FULL version of WINXP,and was told to install it right over WIN98.Is this OK to do? Or should I format first?Thanks for any help I can get on this.
I'd like an example of where FAT32 or NTFS will make any difference for the typical home user. In point of fact, there are still a lot of recovery tools that are only useful with FAT32, which tilts the scale in it's favor IMO. For a server, NTFS makes a lot of sense, since you can dole out permissions a lot easier than with FAT.Originally posted by Monstrous Mi:
I have installed XP many times in our lab at work.
You can have other partitions in FAT32 if you like but NTFS is superior and gives much better control over your file system (i.e. it is recommended for the primary partition where Windows is installed).
