I have upgraded my Windows 95 to 98 and converted it to FAT32.I am not impressed with it's performance and wish to
format and partition my hardisk and return to 95.What files will I need and wheere to find them ,as I have only done a format and partition (FDISK) under DOS before.

Thanks

Steve

I'm not sure about win98, but in win95 a win95 startup disk will have all you need, except for cdrom drivers. You get to the startup disk by going to control panel/ - add/remove programs. It has basically the same fdisk, format, etc., except the fdisk program will ask you if you want to use fat32 (at least in win95b) I usually format, sys the c: drive, then install cdrom drivers. Run setup from the cdrom, or copy the win95 directory to the hard drive and install from there.
