    I HAVE A 20GIG HD RUNNING WIN98SE, FAT32. I CAN ONLY USE 2GIG OF THE HD. I TRIED USING FDISK BUT SINCE I DON'T HAVE A DOS PARTITION IT WON'T LET ME PARTITION THE REST OF THE DRIVE. IS THERE ANOTHER SOFTWARE THAT WILL LET ME ACCESS THE REST OF MY DRIVE WITHOUT LOSING ANY DATA?

    Give us a little more info, how old is the machine that the drive is in? It could be a bios problem.

    Did you install this drive using partitioning software such as MaxBlast from Maxtor?

    See Ya

    the computer is pretty new (about 1yr old). It has a P3 processor, 128mb ram, and it's a Dell dimension. Nothing was used other than FDisk when setting up the HD. Dos was then installed, then Win98se overwriting Dos.
