I've got an old computer that i have finally managed to get working. The only problem is that the hard drive is only a 257mb running 95. However, i do have another hardive lying around that has a capacity of 540.8mb. I want to make this a second hardrive on the system but it will have to be formatted first. Won't it? The larger of the two hardrives isn't even running windows on it. When you put it in and start her up it just says Starting MS-DOS. I want to know how the hell i can format this drive. Also, what is all of this partioning stuff anyway. Do i need to do it if i just want to have a empty second hardrive with nothing on it?
