It's a little late in the game now, but um... how do you manually partition a hard drive? I'm thinking this FDISK thing is the way to go, but I'm not sure.
A little background: I already formatted the drive, so everything's gone. All that's showing right now is assumably DOS. (Yes, I genuinely have no idea what I'm doing, but obviously that hasn't stopped me!) I have an 8 gig hard drive, which is about 7.6 gigs realistically, and I want it in 4 partitions- 2 gig, 2 gig, 2 gig, and 1.6 gig. I have... drum roll please... a Windows 95 disc, with the 98 upgrade disc as well.
What is this Logical DOS and Extended DOS drive stuff? Should I install the OS, then try and partition the drive? When does the FAT32 stuff come into play?
[Edit]: It says things like "Invalid system disk." I can't do anything. Help?
