What would be the benefit of FAT32 over NTFS? I thought I used it before & my system was faster?

The statement about the network is not true. You can access a NTFS shared drive over a network in 98SE (I tested it, but I doubt 95 and earlier will work)Elroy Jetson said:fat32 can be read my dos, win3.x, 95 and 98, ntfs cannot. plus, ntfs gives you added capabilities on file encryption, etc. fat32 or fat should not be faster than ntfs. if you reformat a hdd, go ntfs if you don't dun any of the above OSes over a network and need to access this drive.
