Please go to WWW.DRD.DYNDS.ORG/INDEX2.HTML and download XPBOOT.EXE and create a bootable floppy. Start your system using this bootable floppy and fdisk your second hard disk and format it. Hope this solves your problem. I am not a computer pro and will be pleased if I am right. Thanks. Please acknowledge.
