sounds about okay, but you might get problems with the graphics,
because DOS was made for other graphic cards (something with the interface), but if you run the games from win98se, you should be fine. BTW, how much diskspace does win98se support?

I'm not sure, but I believe that FAT32 allowed partitions up to 4 Gb and NTFS allows more than that. I've tried ext3 and reiserfs too and they handle at least 25 Gb so there shouldn't be any problems. But as I said I'm not sure about FAT32 though.

I believe you're right and FAT32 allows up to 4 gig before the hard drive must be partitioned. I have an ancient Win98 computer with a 6 gig hard drive that had to be partitioned. It's great for playing DOS games. Most don't have to be configured at all - just install and play.
