I have 5 bad clusters on my HDD.  Is it possible to remove
them temporarily so I can convert my drive from a FAT 16 to a FAT 32 now that I have Win 98 so I can get more space out of my HDD?  Is it also risky to do and do you recommend it?

Windows will not conver drive with bad sectors, but there are always ways to use fat 32 on your system and bad sector is not always permament.
