I have windows sap and want to format and reinstall. Can I go into administrator and format the hard drive, thereby wiping out data (I have already saved what I wanted)? Then I want to set up a double boot with sap and win 98 on different segments of hard drive

What is Windows sap?

es you can format the disk and partition it. To install 98, you need to format that partition as FAT32. Format the other partition as NTFS for Windows 200 or above.

The link below isn't the best but covers the basis.


After you have made your partisions install your os first in the first partision, and install the sap in the second. You can have more that two partision if you wish, the alphabetical notation will just keep going.

btw...SAP is a data warehousing program.
