hey shapeless

Although its been a while, you might like to look at www.bootdisk.com - they have all the disk sets for windows os's - basically if i were you id probably grab the 2K or NT set... that will give you standard setup options for an OS install - which will give you the ability to format the hard drive in NTFS mode!

Hope that helps :)
