hello all,i have not installed 98 for a while but i seem to remember,step 1 run fdisk,delete old windows,partitions etc,then restart,then step 2,format c: then restart,then choose to start with cd support,then i am sure i used to put e:\setup then it would start to load but when i try to set up all i get is "bad file or command name" i changed the cdrom for a newer one and now i get "CDR101 not ready reading drive E abort,retry,fail?"
what am i doing wrong?thanks in advance.peter
