saloom,

You have a few choices here, one good and one a hassle.

You have a few choices here, one is to backup all your data and then delete both partitions and create one large one, and reinstall win98 and apps and restore data to the drive. Not a pretty site. The other thing you can do is to use a software package called partition magic that can delete the partition you don't want and then resize the one you want and lose no data on the fly, this is the perferred solution, but it is not free, the software costs about $60.00

This is the best software on the market for what you need to do.

Good Luck

The only way to get your drive's full capacity in one partition is to use FAT32.
