I have Windows 98. I converted my drive from FAT16 to FAT32. Now, can I install Red Hat Linux 5.1 Manhattan, so Linux and Windows will work together?

Yes, kernels from 2.0.35 (or maybe even 2.0.34) will work flawlessly with FAT32. Make sure that you activte both "DOS FS support" and "VFAT" when recompliling the kernel.

Mount the FAT32 partitition with:
mount -t vfat /dev/yourpartitiondevice /yourmountpoint

or modify /etc/fstab to mount this on system-startup.
