Your question is incomplete!

If u have 2 use the OS among Windows 95,98, 2000 and Me then u have 2 boot your PC with a bootable CD. Run Fdisk and make shorter partirions. (Shorter partitions will save your hard disk space). Fdisk is a selfguided software so hope that u will be able 2 make partitions through it.

Hi,
If you are trying to partition a brand new HDD and then install the OSes(--several if you want?) then you might be interested in using FDISK...and then FORMAT those partitions, following the OSes installation(and better on different partitionsfor each) However, if you want to partition the HDD with OS already on it--better use a Partition Magic. It will allow you to keep the OS and still partition the HDD...A trial version(4) of its comes with 10th or 11th(don't remember) edn of "Upgrading and Repairing PCs" book by Que. Last choice is easier but there are some disadvantages of it too(as for my opinion:)
Good luck and have fun!
