If the drive was previously a boot/system disk for NT or Win2K, the OS will recognize it as such and helpfully prevent you from doing *anything* to the hard drive. In fact, after physically removing the drive you will not be able to remove the "ghosted" reference to the drive via Drive Manager!! To fdisk the recycled drive: plug the drive into a PC, boot with a Win98 floppy, and run fdisk. </TIP> -- Anthony Baratta President Keyboard Jockeys "Conformity is the refuge of the unimaginative."
