    Just tried to install a SCSI hard drive on a win98 system.

    Drive is in Device Manager but has no Letter assigned. Does not allow me to.

    BIOS recognizes drive and assigns D:

    You need to put a partition on that drive in order to see it in Windoze

    I am working on that now, thanks. But how do I fdisk or partition if the drive has no letter assignment?

    When you run FDISK, it will have an option to switch hard disks. Change to the second disk and create the Pri-DOS Partition and set it active. once that is done, you can reboot and format that drive just fine!
