This should work nicely for you:

Boot up from a floppy, then from the command prompt, type:

format c:

Then, some ridiculous warning might show up with a y/n option. Type:

y

Then: <enter>

I hope this helps! :)

I was only trying to be helpful! ;-)

Actually, when I had Win98SE, then WinME for a while, I did have to
learn a useful trick or two in order to recover from my ignorant
tinkering brought on by my sometimes dangerous curiosity. :)

I have those moments too...I call them 'colleagues'. :)

These are people that bought their first pc three years ago, heard the word
BIOS, found out how to access it and then the proverbial poo-poo hit the
fan!

I have an old 386 notebook computer from 1994 (it was called a
"laptop" back then) with DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1 on it, but that
machine has never been connected to the Internet, as I just used it
for writing and playing chess. And though I've had an "Internet"
computer for just over five years now, and I'm pretty comfortable
mucking about with software, including the OS itself, I'm still very
afraid of messing with the BIOS. Even when someone mentioned a BIOS
tweak that might help improve fs9 performance, I decided to leave the
BIOS alone. :)

I have, only once as I recall, gone into the BIOS to adjust one thing,
but that was only with *very* explicit instructions in hand.
Otherwise, I've left it alone.

Quite true. Though I can still mess up software pretty thoroughly if
I try hard enough, I'm pretty comfortable with tweaking software.
It's hardware that I *really* know very little about, and every time
I want to deal with hardware, I have to ask lots of questions.

I've learned quite a bit in just these past few days, but still, I'm
at the point where I only feel comfortable with hardware if I can
collect advice and comments from people much more knowledgeable than
I am in this regard; and it's not very difficult to find people with
much more hardware knowledge and experience than I have! :)

You finally changed your moniker, eh? I can't believe you listened to a

I have a year old notebook and still call it a laptop.
Why did they change that anyway?

Anyway....it's the only computer I have in the house of which I've never
accessed the BIOS. And that's only because it's a completely different
piece of technology than the regular computers I've built.
Adding hardware is out of the question for me.
You could just have a look in the BIOS and study the various options.
There's always the possibility of exiting it without saving any changes you
might have accidentally made.

That's always the best way to do it....using printed instructions.
I once downloaded a program, can't remember which one that was but it was a
long time ago, and during the install I got a message box on the screen
instructing me to adjust some of the BIOS settings according to the 'read
me' file. Yeah right! And now you're gone, program!

Hee hee! The "call sign" has indeed grown on me (thanks Dallas!), and
after "Sparrow", who's opinion on everything aeronautical I respect
without reservation, expressed a liking for the "call sign", I've
decided to accept my fate and be forevermore known to the simulated
flight community as "Lawn Dart". :)

Perhaps if I ever do acquire my own "real world" flying contraption
(be it a "real" plane or "ultralight"), I may indeed have to have my
"Lawn Dart" call sign affixed to it. Sort of like the long since
grounded "Kiwi Airlines" (a name I thought was absolutely wonderful
for an airline, considering at least one of its possible meanings!).
;-)

And who are "they" anyway, to go about willy nilly changing names of
this or that?! :) Of course, come to think of it, I rarely ever
actually put the little computer on my lap, as it just wasn't the
most comfortable position from which to type. :)

I have thought about that, and may indeed do it someday, but the BIOS
is something so scary to me that if I really have no great need to go
into it, I'll simply avoid dealing with it at all...just to be "extra
safe". :)

This seems a reasonable enough approach to me! :) After all, what it
adjustments to the BIOS have the desired effect on the program in
question, but affects other things in a not so desired way? Knowing
as little as I do about the BIOS, unless the program very explicitly
explained any and all possible "side effects" of such an adjustment,
I would be wary of just going ahead with such a thing just to satisfy
one program.

That's why in every BIOS I've ever looked at, there's a "Reset Default"
option... just in case the operator really screws things up... ;)

Hi Crash,

"BTW - where is the varmit? On vacation on some exotic island again??"

ROTFL!!!! :)))

Fair dinkum, mate, you totally crack me up, in the nicest possible way,
of course!!

I don't suppose "the varmit" would mind it being known that he's
attending a Wedding, and then a spot of skiing....

I totally agree, it sounds like a tough job to me, too, but I suppose
someone has to make the sacrifice and do it!?!?

Geeze, I'm still laughing from your post - you're a Classic, mate!!

Hi Marcel,

Dallas. :)"

Why on earth not, mate - after all, nearly as many people listen to him
as they do to you??

Yeah...but everybody knows you can't take a crazy Dutchman seriously. ;-)

Dalli just returned from this years Rattlesnake Roundup. Many people
head out into the desert and in among the cedar to flush these guy out
of their hiding places.

It also reminded me to get the shotgun out and go hunting on our
property. I've killed two 5 - 6 foot Rattlers both while walking a dog
in the middle of the night and some workmen killed one small guy. It
costs over $1000.00 here to treat dogs bitten by these guys and there's
no guarantee to dog will live. In fact the odds are against survival.
Treatment for me if I'm bitten is free so Id rather get it instead of
one of the dogs.

I'll be going to the "grandaddy" Sweetwater roundup this weekend to see what
all the fuss is about.

I catch rattlers live and relocate them vs. killing them (in general; recent
studies show at least adult rattlesnakes do not adapt well after relocation
away from their "home turf," so I might just start eating them). The dog of
our house's previous owner died from snakebite, and a neighbor's dog got
bitten on the head, which "swole up like a basketball." All I've seen here
so far is a decent-size bullsnake.

Before I learned the difference I killed a rat snake out in the front
yard. The coloring looked more like a moccasin. But since then I take
the harmless snakes back behind us into the thick woods. I only move
them because we have a couple dogs that would kill them.
