Getting your system from ext2 to FAT is pretty easy. Just doing an 'fdisk /mbr' will not be enough. That is AFTER you, while at Linux console type 'cfdisk' (these are all minus the quotes of course.) In cfdisk, arrow to the linux partition and delete it, all of a sudden you have free space (before leaving cfdisk make sure to [write] this to disk. Then boot off your win9x rescue? disk and type 'fdisk /mbr' and while you are there go into fdisk and you should be able to partition the now free space to whatever size etc. you would like. Yer all set. I've had to do this so many times it no longer hurts my head. Good luck...
