Default Um...

The win98 and win98se cd has every thing you need. Just set the bios to boot from the cd first the hard drive then the floppy. When you're done don't forget to put things back as they were.

EDIT: are you doing a dual boot or just chunking xp for 98?

Default Well...

There should be a menu. On mine there is.
The menu comes up or you may have to explore the cd.
if the menu comes up then click the browse this cd item. Then click setup. It takes you throught it all.
If you have to explore the cd then just select setup.
Simple, let us know how it comes out.
