I think I am the one you are addressing as the one with the 32MB partition,
so I'll reply. If it wasn't me, never mind!
I used the Disk Management tool in XP pro to create the partition at 32GB
which is what you probably intended if I am not mistaken. I have a 60GB disk
so the remainder is unallocated and wasted. As if I had 60 GB of music!
Now that someone has indicated that Win98 will create a FAT32 partition
larger than 32GB I'll try to find someone with Win98. I wonder if Win 2K is
a little more generous than XP?
