all I was saying was you must format the G: drive partition to make use of it. Everything else you mentioned must be done, and then the formating. I mentioned the raw ftp commands because they are so easy to format with, and you don't risk messing any of your original stuff up. I can try and help if you tell me what ftp program you are using. I personally use SmartFTP, although I know its not a favorite around here, it has always done me right
Please post your ftp program and I will try and taylor the exact "clicks" to your needs.
