    1. I did an install of Vista three days ago with system restore by holding down "0" and turning on the computer. (1.5 hours on wireless at 1MB/sec)
    I partitioned the HDD to 130GB and 80GB so that I could install more than one operating system (multiboot). Windows Vista and Windows 98.
    The next day I Windows Updated Vista and installed McAfee Total Protection and Microsoft Office. (6.5 hours on wireless at 1MB/sec)
    After the Windows Vista installed I attempted to install Windows 3.11 because my Windows 98 is an Upgrade Version. But I became lost and was not able to complete this. How do I format the 80GB partition for FAT32 ???
    Did Vista format both partions to NTFS ??? I wouldn't think so. Or can't my older Windows recognize a NTFS partition ???
    Please help me....what to do.
