Thanks for that very interesting information on hiding.. However, I'm not
sure I've understood you correctly re. the above extract. In my experience,
XOSL does allow the hiding of individual logical drives. Some of my OSes
are on logicals and I hide some of them from others when booting.

and run setup directly from the win98se CD. Did you ever run "sys
to make c drive bootable, or "format c: /s" to make it bootable? If
did, then check the contents of dirve c... there probably is the
*.bin which compresses the c drive. You'll need to run "dir/a" to
hiddenfile. If this is not the case, you better explain how you do
