I suspect your problem has more to do with Win98 than FAT. Win98 is not
really designed to be a server and there are a number of places where you
could run out of resources. A Win98 box with at least 64MB would be able to
run NT 4. If you have a recent enough BIOS and say 128MB you could run Win2K
Pro or XP Pro comfortably, both are preferred over NT 4. FAT32 and/or NTFS
for the disk should both be fine. Of course, you could also go the Linux
route, but that would be bad news if you don't have any Unix background or
someone that can help you with Linux while you learn. With either Linux, NT,
2K, or XP you will have tools that will help pinpoint where the bottleneck
is if you still have one after moving off of Win98.
