Chapter 9. Working with Disks and Drives > Understanding Disk Partitions

Understanding Disk Partitions

To view, create, and manage a disk drive's DOS partition table in Windows 98, you use a program called FDISK. FDISK is a command-line utility inherited from DOS that has changed little in appearance over the years. The primary difference in the Windows 98 version of FDISK is its capability to create partitions using the new FAT32 file system.

Note

FAT32 was actually introduced in the OEM Service Release 2 of Windows 95, but Windows 98 fully integrates it into the operating system by enabling you to convert existing FAT16 partitions to FAT32.
