Well, I usually use Norton Speeddisk to defragment Windows 98
systems because it does a lot better job then defrag, but I have not
had problems using defrag on 60Gb partitions. But Windows XP may
have problems with partitions that size. I have not used large FAT32
partitions on XP. (Or used XP much at all...)
