I recently installed xp pro after fully formatting c drive. The pc has struggled with xp and i am now wanting to remove it completly and put 98se back on. I have a 98 start up floppy and 98se installation disk available. I have tried booting off the start up floppy to a dos prompt, I then typed in "format C:" to be informed invalid command. My plan was to format c drive this way and then boot up off 98se installation cd to re install. My plans have gone sadly wrong can anyone please help me.

When you get to the command prompt from your floppy, type the word C: and press the "Enter" key. This will leave you at the C: prompt, from this type.

format C:

The format will then go ahead with a warning "You are about to lose all info on C:". Just click the "Enter" key again and sit back while it does it's job. j.
