Can somebody help me. I can take a computer from my
company and want to give it to a school. As it is a
pentium I 133 mHz I just wanted to remove the OS which is
NT4.0 and install 98SE as they don't have any network and
that 98SE will be more then sufficiant for what they have
planned to do with this machine.

Can somebody tell me how I can remove NT4.0?

Many thanks

To wipe the drive, some ways include; boot a win98 startup disk, run fdisk
and delete all partition information found (as long as NTFS is primary). Or
boot the Windows NT CD-Rom or setup disks and when you get to the point,
delete the existing NTFS and or other partitions found, then abort the
install. Or use a utility named delpart. Once removed you can boot the Win98
CD-Rom or restore CD-Rom to start your install. Make sure you have win9x
device drivers available before hand.
