You can use third-party partitioning software like Partition Magic.

Partition Magic 7 is an indispensable piece of software ... you can do just about anything with partitions ... INCLUDING converting an NTFS partition to FAT32.

_DM_, just make sure you turn off all NTFS "features" like compression, encryption etc. before you try to convert.

I've set my partition to NTFS. Will I be able to boot using a 98 boot disk & use the partition magic floppies (A:\pqmagic) to manage my hard drive? I did not think of that when I changed over. :confused:

lol.

I'll have to agree with XPMagic though, Partition Magic 7 is really nice. I went from NTFS to FAT32 easily and resized the partitions to make room for Linux too.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
