Hello. I have an e-machine from Wal-Mart and I want to create a 10 GB partition and run Windows 98SE on the partition. I am a musician and Pro Tools by Digidesign only works under 98SE. Could anyone help me out. I just went to this system from an ancient AMD 300Mhz system and I really don't want to screw it up. Thanks in advance.....Cheers....Stratomaster

You can use Digtal Dolly (Hard drive utility) to resize and then create a FAT32 partition that '98 will reside.
I would prefer a second option, a second hard drive. In the event you no long need Win98 you can just pull the second drive or wipe it without fear of corrupting your primary hard drive. When instlling '98 choose the Custom install so you can designate which partition\drive you will install on.
