how m i ever going to format this thing
So ive got myself that dell latitude cpt , evrythiing works great BUT. Windoze millenium is installed on it and ill take anything but millenium so i want to format it and install win 98 SE.
This laptop is buiilt like this u have some kind of slot where you can put in a cd-rom or a floppy drive (watch the OR).
So i figured that if i format it then take a startupdisk put it in the floppy drive and choose the option with cd-rom, then the laptop is reading from the floppy BUT in the meanwhile hes trying to detect the cd-rom wiich isnt there coz i cant have both in it.
So i figured i mighgt take an external floppy drive on a paralel port BUT since when in windoz millenium the comp doesnt sees the floppy drive i dont think hes gonne see it when im just bootinig up:::i alrdy tried to boot up with disk in floppy drive on paralell port but he didnt said anything, therefor i can tell that it doesnt recognizes that floppy on a paralell port.
Anyone ever had the same problem i have?
