If you want to install XP and install vista later

Boot from XP cd, and format, and install it from that.

When it says it cant find a windows system on the machine, take out the disk and replace with the 98 cd.

When it confirms there is a 98 disk in place, it will ask you to insert the xp disk.
Then it will install

1. you do not need to have 98 installed just show XP the 98 CD when it asks for it

2. install XP AFTER Vista click here
