I have a Win98 computer networked to one running WinXP with an NTFS drive. The Win98 computer can access the NTFS drive on the WinXP machine with no problems. If you had a dual-boot setup on the same drive, the Win9x OS would be able to read only FAT32 partititons. Bruce Roorda Possum Hill Farm ----- Original Message ----- From: "T.O.
