A word of warning if you're using an older system...

I recently tried converting my system using this method.  The 
machine I'm running cvsnt on is quite old and in order to access
the full capacity of the hard drive I've installed 'EZ-bios'
(from western digital - the manufacturer of the drive).

Seems ntfs is not one of the file systems that the version of the 
utility I have understands - regardless of cause, result was that 
when NT tries to convert the system drive next time it boots the '
system hangs and I never get back into NT.

I left the system partition as FAT and the partition that has
cvs repository I formatted as ntfs using NT's disk administrator
