The help file is unclear - if I use the utility to convert to FAT32 from FAT16 on my root C: partition - will I have to reinstall or not?  The help suggests that Win98 will need reinstalled - is this really the case - surely not!

I run Win98 too.  I converted from FAT16 to FAT32 and did not reinstall and I have not had any problem to speak of.  I think Mircosoft suggests that you do that just incase.  I wouldn't do it unless something weird goes on in the conversion process to FAT32.  Or you can do it just for fun, but I don't think you need to.  Like I said I have had no problems at all.   Hope this helps.
