Overcoming FAT32 4GB File Size Limit?

I am still running Windows 98 and plan to upgrade to XP once Conroe is released later this month. I have several ISO's I want to burn to DVD that are in rar format. Unfortunately, the ISO file is greater than 4GB and cannot exist under the FAT32 File System. Does anyone know of a way to overcome this? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

  1. Wait until you install XP and format your disc using NTFS instead of FAT32. Should solve your problem.
  2. So xp will go on the new computer not the one with 98 on it right now, correct?

    Get a full version of windows and install it as an upgrade on the 98 computer. Convert the disks to ntfs and then burn them. Once new computer is built you can reformat the old 98/xp computer, reinstall 98 on it and then install xp on the new computer. This will keep you legal, if it matters to you.
