Default Hard drive larger then 120GB question

Hello:

I know that there is a limitation in Win98SE with regard to hard drive size
greater then 120GB. My question is, if I put a 320GB hard drive in an SE
box but only create a partition of 120GB or less, will I still run into
problems?

TIA

Thanks for the links guys....

.... so, I guess as long as I don't create more then one partition and make
it less then 127GBs in size, Win98SE should have no problems...in theory
..... I'll post back once I get the drive.

Check whether the drive has a jumper to make it look like a 120Gb driver
regardless of the actual size.

Where does it say that you can't partition a 240 GB drive into two valid
120s?
a 360 into 3 ea 120s?

also, we use defrag from win 98 Me, are there other Me files we can use on
win 98SE?
