    Windows 98 doesn't read NTFS. Go back to using XP. As long as you didn't delete your NTFS partitions, they should still be there.

    yawgie - he's been using fdisk - its probably a ****ed disk by now (as in partitions are gone)

    don't forget that the size of HD when you buy it is in decimal and when your useing fdisk its some other base system - its about 10% difference

    Yay for me posting at 3:00 AM when I don't read properly.

    He probably deleted all the partitions or tried to use extended partitions or something.
