Are you sure your CD-ROM is drive E?

Maybe the CD-drive is faulty?

Have you checked the actual CD out on another system?

If you install Windows 98 and and put the floppy in and your CD Rom it will ask you if you want to install with CD Rom support select yes and it should auto run why are you having to type E in as it is a D drive?? if you have only one CD Rom drive.Check you are showing fist boot floppy in the bios.

Further to my last post i should have said once the floppy has finished it will show A:\ type in D:\dir/w press enter.
Then set up it should then run the CD ROM part of the set up.
