After formatting 40 gig hard drive and attempting to to install Win 98se
I get an error message stating that I don't have enough room on hard drive. Win 98se is a legitimate program with key code. Mother board is ATX processor is pentium 3. Machine is totally home built from parts that I have salvaged from other computers. Any help I can get will be appreciated. I have done many of these re-builds with no problem.

Hi have you..
Boot from the startup floppy disk.
Select to start Without Cd-Rom support.
At the prompt, type
FDISK
Delete existing Partitions.
Create Primary DOS Partition
Reboot with Floppy disk still in the drive.
Type.
FORMAT C:
follow the instructions.

Then use the 98se install Cd to install.

fdisk/mbr. will repair Master Boot Record not remove Partitions.

Also, make sure to select "Yes" to enable large disk support.
