    I have just been given an old computer. A P120. To start afresh I erased the c: disk with the killdisk program free from the net. After this, it showed c: was empty but after I rebooted the computer I couldn't get back to c. I think it said invalid drive specification. (I am using a DOS boot disk made using Windows XP.)

    What should I do?

    you need to Fdisk and create a partion. Keep in mind that depending on the size of the HDD you may need to use FAT32 or NTFS

    Hmm. When I type fdisk it says: bad command of file name. I have made the boot disk twice using Windows XP. It was the same both times. I assume that fdisk wasn't included for some reason. Do you know where I would be able to get fdisk? (The disk is 1.5 GB I believe.)

    Is Fdisk actually on the floppy??

    Try searching for boot disk downloads on google and find one with Fdisk on it.

    Hope this helps.

    I don't think it was on the floppy but I have now searched on google and found the required software on the net. All seems to be working now.

    Thanks for you help. :)
