On a machine running 98SE you would go to add/remove programs in the control panel,where you can make a startup disk it's 1.2MB and fits on a floppy. There should be a way to make it with just the CD though I can't recall how.
ok, I downloaded a boot disk that loads cd drivers. I can now access the cd drive. I type setup but then it says it requires microsoft windows to run!!! (how do you install windows which requires... windows????)
It sounds like the format didnt work proper. Have you tried reformating and removing all the partitions on the hard drive? Did you use fdisk? Also who makes your Hard Drive. They usually give you tools to wipe your drive clean. Im suspecting if you can get the drive cleaned, and use a 98 boot disk, it should work.
