I used the driver I found on this site for a Windows 98-based machine. This installation went fine, but I am having some partition problems. We use clone malc, which a program written by a buddy of mine to set up the flash card for a certain board during testing. The certain board on this test station requires a multiple partition of 7MB by 7MB by 226MB. It seems that it can only write 7MB by 6MB by 227MB. Has anyone heard of a partition problem with this driver at all? All of our test stations with XP work fine.

I don't think it's a problem with the driver. More likely a limitation of how Windows 98 handles partitions. What happens if you partition the drive on XP and view it in 98?

Ya, I did some playing around and it is indeed windows 98. I am just going to build a dedicated station with Windows 2k and leave the other two stations alone. All the testing software and configs. would take two long. Thanks for the help SoftStag!!
