Win98 supposedly will ship with a FAT32 converter, but will only convert
in one direction - from FAT16 to FAT32.
Both Partition Magic and Partition-It can convert in both directions
without affecting data on the partition. The current version of
Partition Magic is 3.05. It may be 3.02 or something out of the box, but
can be updated to 3.05 at PowerQuest's web site. It's a good idea to do
that because some bugs related to FAT32 have been fixed since version
3.00 was released.
PM version 2.XX and earlier do not support FAT32 at all.
I've never tried Partition-It, but I couldn't recommend any software any
more highly than PM. It's invaluable, especially when you run multiple
OS's and file systems on one machine.
