Natively W9x/ME does not support NTFS, but this may help:

Why are you trying to use a drive formatted with NTFS with WinME in the 1st place?

Probably because you don't know how to do it the right way.

Microsoft doesn't sell Windows in ISO format. I don't care if you illegally downloaded it or not, I'm just saying.....

You've been posting in almost every forum & each time it's about a different OS. And you're asking a lot of questions that could be easily answered by using google. I understand that we are all newbs at one point, but you need to come up with a plan & stick to it rather than jumping from Linux, to WinXP, to Win200, to Win98/ME.

You need a CD/DVD burner, some blank discs, & a program called ImgBurn. You can then convert & burn the ISO file to disc, then boot off it & install the OS the "right way". ImgBurn is free - you can get it here:

All this other putzing around trying to read NTFS from Win98/ME or making HDD's bootable is just a waste of time. Create the discs & use them.

BTW, your system apparently has only 128MB RAM? You're not going to run much with that. It was suggested in the Linux forum that you try Puppy or Vector Light, did you try that yet?

As for being tight for money, do you have a GoodWill or AmVets in your area? Many times you can buy a working tower for about $10 & then use it as-is or gut it for parts.

Yep 30 posts so far and no advice taken, just run Puppy Linux 5, from a CD and it can save each session, if the machine will not boot from CD then there are Linux floppy boot disks. I am finished and have said my piece.
