I was wodering if someone here could help me. I have an old 6x86 computer with 2 hard drives - 'c' drive has 2.3gig capacity and 'd' drive has a capacity of 4.1 gig. I want to send this computer away to boarding school with my daughter and was told that the best way to clean it up is to format the hard drive. I have not done this before and was hoping that someone on this forum would be able to tell me how to do it in simple step by step instructions. I know how to get to the DOS prompt :-) Also once I have formatted it do I just put in the Windows '98 CD to re-install? Thankyou in advance.
