If, however, it is Windows 98 and ME themselves that are limited to 32GB, and not the FAT32 file system, then i don't understand how that can be the case, but I accept it since Windows 2000 has problems with 20GB NTFS partitions as the second drive (any drive other than IDE Primary Master), so I have to run my second 20GB HDD as an 8.2GB, NTFS Formatted, until I have sufficient time to download Windows 2000 Service Pack 2.
I've seen information that says both 32gig and 2tb, however windows will not format a partition larger than 32 gig as fat32. Where the limitation lies, I'm not entirely sure, but Windows can't (or won't?) do it. As the windows formats go, they allow 2 gig from fat16, 32 gig from fat32, 4gig for ntfsv4(pre-sp5), 8gig for ntfsv4(sp5 and higher), and 4tb for ntfsv5.
