May I ask what you are trying to do? Are you trying to update Windows, or install WinME over another Windows version? With what Windows startup floppy did you start up?

Using good old MS-DOS commands you can get rid of some things. Although you need to know what you want to delete. If there's for instance a c:/temp folder that you can easily live without, you use the following commands:
C: {enter}
deltree temp {enter}

The deltree command deletes the whole directory and all files therein. So be careful with this command. The more down to earth delete command (del) just deletes files. Using wildcards as * and ? will let you overcome the correct filenames. For instance: del system*.* will delete system32.dll but not system.dll

No, you can delete individual files as well.

But humor me. On that PC, on the A: prompt type C: and hit enter.
Now type dir {enter}
What does it say at the bottom, how many bytes do you actually have free?
