install windows xp then it should ask you whether you'd like to format the drive or convert your current FAT32 system to NTFS and some more options. It worked with windows 98 and 2000 when i was installing xp
Reformatting would mean backing up your entire system first, so it might just be easier to make an NTFS partition using something like Partition Magic.
just back-up, reformat, and reinstall windows....i like xp personally.... reformatting will be good for your system anyway, it cleans up alot of junk...if you need help on reformatting you can e-mail me or just check the web

It's not reformatting it's converting file system to ntfs and you won't lose anything well except Documents and Settings folder Program Files Folder and Windows folder
But You Can move files before you Install XP. So that's not a big problem losing all your data
You won't lose anything converting FAT32 to NTFS. Load Win2k, then open a command prompt and type CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS
It will run a quick routine and tell you that conversion will be performed upon the next reboot....... That's it!
Or you could just use a proggie like Primo/RecordNowMax to image your source up front. It splits the .gi into 2GB chunks and will stitch them back together during the burning process. That's how I do my dupes on my Win98SE machine. CloneDVD works well also for resizing DVD-9's to DVD-5's. Of course you have to rip the DVD to the hard drive first and deCss it with DVD-Decrypter, but that's nothing uncommon for this process. I read that DVD Decrypter can create ISO images in 2GB chunks as well, but not sure how they burn--have had no need to try it since I've always been able to use Primo.
no, you can install windows 2000 and keep fat32.
using ntfs is optional.
for the record, i prefer 2000 - windows xp fills your memory with fluffy pieces of crap that you don't need, unless you are computer illiterate, of course. and if you're worried about file systems, then you can't be.
