At one time I knew this, patched a Win98 computer to correct for it- forgot about it until getting a 100GByte disk for my CF-50 toughbook. I want to dual-boot DOS 7.1/Win98se and XP on it, so use FDISK to make everything FAT-32. My venerable Boot Diskette had the original 98se FDISK on it. The Microsoft patcher, still available will put a new FDISK.EXE in the commands subdirectory of the Windows 98/98se path. new size and date.

 

ANYWAY! I wanted to share, just in case someone runs into the same issue and forgot about this 16 year old patch...
