Convert to NTFS:
Open (Command Prompt)
type (convert) drive letter like (C:)
then /fs:ntfs
:example:
C: /fs:ntfs
[enter]
(!!warning!!) it cannot be un-done and reformatting is needed to return to FAT/FAT32

()IE6 & Outlook Express: Uninstall / reinstall; check settings;
()You might try running it under a Win98SE setting from within XP: re: XP Help: To set the compatibility properties for a program manually
Right-click the program icon on your desktop or the shortcut on the Start menufor the program you want to run, and then click Properties.
Click the Compatibility tab, and change the compatibility settings for your program.

The sytax for the conversion to NTFS is

convert c: /fs:ntfs /v

You should get a confirmation.

The conversion will take place when you reboot.

Not sure where to start you on the links issue.

You should be able to find the volume name by booting to a DOS diskette and displaying the primary partition information in FDISK. Most are nothing but enter.

As for OE wanting to disconnect, click on tools->options then Connection tab. Make sure only the first one is selected, click OK. Click on Tools->Accounts, Mail tab. open up the properties and click on the connection tab. Make sure that OE is using the correct dialer if it is set to connect automatically at all. that should fix OE. As for IE not bringing up a web page, did you make sure that you have a homepage specified? Click on Tools->Internet Options in IE and that first white box at the top should be your homepage. I hope this helps you out!
