Can someone tell me how to install pri dos and non dos partition to a hard drive. I'm trying to install win 98 to a dell laptop lattitude cp.

Boot from a floppy, run FDISK from that and you will see the option to create Primary Partition.

As to non-DOS partition, really like to know why you would need to create one to start with if you are running Windows 98 :)

When you have created the primary dos partition remember to activate it.

The only reason to create a non DOS partition would be if you were going to install onther os eg Linux. The Linux installer does that.
