Hi Vijay,

  Are you using fips v 2.0 (partitioning fat32 is new in this version). I've repartitioned a Win98 PC with fips recently - no problem. I picked up the source and binaries a wee while ago - can't remember the URL (reply to me directly and I can email them to you...)..

Do you want to remove win98? If so, you can repartition your hd during the
installation of Debian (uses cfdisk), in this process you remove the
fat32 partition(s) and you can make ext2 and a swap partition, if you
also want win98, you can also make a fat32 partition where you can
install windows (you'll have to install win98 again, except if you got
more then one partition already, in that case you can just remove one of
those partitions and replace them by ext2), after that you can use lilo
to set up multiboot.

Hope this is of any help.
