If the motherboard bios recognizes 200 gb hard drive, is it possible that Windows won't recognize it?

If everything's nice and good with the 200 gb under Windows XP, and say if you booted the computer up to windows ME or 95 (with multiboot setups). What would you see in file manager? If you attempt to write files under older OS is it going to corrupt the data?

Windows 95 has a 32gb limitation, what about 98? ME? 2K? and XP?

95/98/98SE should support it, although FAT16 is limited to 2GB per partition, so.........uh............you'd have 100 partitions.......:eek:
