|Thanks for the great ideas! nLite sounds like a winner with that DOS partition...|
The hard drive, OtheHill, is a 40GB typical laptop drive, not solid state. They didn't use solid states in the Fujitsu Point 1600 because of their "state-of-the-art" hard drive shock protection which consists of a foam pad around the hard drive... Go figure.
The image idea sounds good, but the only problem that I foresee is the fact that the tablet is rather old and, while it does have a USB 1.1 port, it can only boot from the hard drive.
Although, I could have DOS on the first partition like in the other idea, but I could include Symantec Ghost files on that partition so I could even do a network ghosting if I wanted...
Many options to choose. I'm going to do some testing with VMware to iron out all of the details.
One thing I am kinda worried about is the fact that if I installed Windows 2000 on a second partition, my drive letter for the larger Windows 2000 partition would probably be "D". Being obsessive compulsive about that, would there be a way to "hide" that first DOS partition from Windows 2000 so I could have that partition as "C"?
Thanks Again for all of your help,
