Sigh...I have an NEC 486 that I was setting up to use in a three PC home network just for practice.  I have upgraded the CPU with Evergreen Technologies upgrade to a 200 mhz, and all went well.  Then, I wanted to do a clean install of W98 (it had 95 on it).  I fdisked the HD and partitioned using a W98 boot disk.  I no get the prompt A:> but cannot get to FORMAT c:\ from here.  It will not recognize "C".  I fear the worst, but am anxious to give it the college try and any help would be appreciated.  This is a learning thing and I'm game to try anything.  I have 64mb ram, 3.2 G HD and well, ask away! :)  Doreen
