Marshill-

I sent you the file, it is in jpg but it isn't.
You have to rename the file to .zip, just delete the words jpg and rename.
It works that way.
I made it because they don't allow executables in mail.

yeah, the only problem being that the compie is running 95, not 98, so the disk dosen't really work. I don't know where to put the drivers, so I guess it dosen't matter. Any other suggestions????

It works for me, no matter the OS, even XP, because you have to copy all the files in a floppy and reboot to use it.
It even has a help section. It is a DOS disk.

my main problem is when I try to access the cdrom in the drive, it says invalid drive specification, I have tried accessing every drive letter to check for cdrom (with the exception of A and C) and it says the same thing. BTW, where am I supposed to put the CD-ROM drivers anyhow?

Default Um...

Get some one to make you a win98 boot floppy. It has generic cd rom drivers on it that work with just about any cd rom drive out there. Delete the partition and then create a new one and finally format. Have your install cd in the drive and when it's all done type in this at the a:> prompt.

setup

Should get you going.

that's weird that the setup command would work, considering there's not a file on the floppy named setup.

Yeah, but because it has cd drivers, it'll force the computer to look for the cd drive when you ask it to prompt. I didn't know this. Thanks Setishock!

Setis-
Did you read all the posts?
I sent him a W98 SE boot floopy. He just can't find the way to use it.
Perhaps you are better than me to explain him how to use it.
