I'm realtively new to linux.  I've been to some of your meetings and I'd
like to thank Dave Cafaro as well for his time and help.

I have a question about dual booting.  I dont really understand FAT/NTFS
systems other than the basics.  However, I installed RH9 on a 333MHZ
machine with 256 MEG RAM.  I set it to FAT32 because I was going to
reinstall W98.  Well, I'm taking a Win 2003 Server class and I tried to
install that on a partition on the same machine.  It went fine obviously
until I went to install Active Directory.  You need NTFS.  I was wondering
if you can set a machine from FAT32 to NTFS or is this only done when
formatted.  I have not installed any files on the system other than the
two operating systems.  I plan to reformat and install both again this
weekend unless someone has some acvice or suggestions.
