Maybe thats the problem. But with my XP CD, I stratched the original, but before it got stratched luckily I did a backup of it, and my burned backup works fine. Thats what I used to reformat last night, so yeah...I dunno

Use your 98 bootdisk or

Get a 98 bootdisk floppy from here:
http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

(make sure if you have SE, you get the SE disk)

And when it boots up type SYS C:

when you get to the A:> thing. That should put back the missing/corrupted files

I ued to get this problem while i was working on old 233mhz systems in my drafting class make sure the hard drive is properly jumped, then take out your ide cables and put them back in... try reinstalling windows... there could of been a problem when instlling drivers for your IDE controllers

Another thing I would suggest would be to start the Win98 floppy disk ad type in:

C:\WINDOWS\WIN.EXE

That is a theory. It mostly happens when IDE controlers go bad, or when they die slowly.
