To format a disk in Windows 9X, follow these steps:

  1. Double-Click on My Computer

  2. Right-Click the drive to select it.

  3. From the File menu select format.

    Note: If the floppy disk is selected prior to inserting a diskette the system will appear to lock up while trying to access the drive.
