Why can't I access my other drive partitions?

Question

When I boot my PC from the WIN ME boot up diskette I can access only my C drive where windows is installed. I am not able to access other drives. I get the message "Invalid drive Specification" when I try to access three other partitions.What is the solution? Please help me.

One reason might be because when you created the partitions, you did not create any extended partitions, in order to access other partitions you must create extended ones and set the partition with the os as active.
