Partition, format c:, then run the 98 setup.

A helpful hint, copy the CD to the harddrive
type cd.. untill you get c:\
md win98
copy x:\win98\*.* c:\win98\*.*
(x being your CD drive letter)
Run setup for there and you shouldn't need the CD any more after that...

Yup, once it's copied, that's all you should have to do.
