    Why would you want to? There's no point really. Unless you want to run Win9x that is.

    As long as the partition you want to convert isn't the one your OS is on then just empty it and format it in the ususal fashion. I don't know of a way to convert it with data on it without using partition magic.

    Aha, that explains it. Is BeOS any good btw? I never tried it.

    Hehe, I tried it. I actually liked it. Too bad BeOS isn't made anymore. It had good potential. Be warned, if you have a Western Digital HD, installing BeOS will screw it up.
