    New at XP and about to install. After installation, when I
    add a 4.3 extra drive for storage, could or should I format
    with 98 diskette or use NTFS format or will either work ?

    If NTFS is the only way, will comuter with XP installed
    know what to do with 'no partition' drive??

    The Disk Management Utility in XP can create partitions and format for you. FAT32 or NTFS.

    First of all what is a 4.3 extra storage drive?

    Could you post the make and model of the drive and the capacity of the drive also?
