Hi guys. I emailed you from work earlier in the day about the "disk manager" I think wayne suggested to remove it if i didnt need it, providing someone knew what they were doin. i spoke to the person who installed it and he is willing to reformat and remove it.I just want to make sure my system doesnt need it. jhance thinks i have a 486 clocked to a 586 with a 133mhz. I think he's right.
Anyways, heres what i found on the bios award winning bios[1984-1985] pci/isa 2a4x5bo8   4.50 version
date on bottom of screen says 3-26-96 and gives the same model number[2a4x5b08] also under bios setup it does say "IDE HDD auto detect" what do you think guys. the hard drive is 3.2gb
thanks

I am not 100% sure that your bios will support the drive, I am 99% sure that it will, but the guy who installs should know if the bios in your machine supports lba mode. If it is supported in hardware, then the last thing you would want is software to trick the computer into thinking that It can support your drive.
Allow the hardware to do the hardwares work.  In the past I have had problems using disk manager and I am not a fan of it.  I know that there are times when you have no choice but to use it, I do not think that you are in that position.
